No ImageCucumber Salad with Grapes and Almonds

Did you make it? Rate it!

    This was delicious. Made it with Persian cucumbers from local Farmer’s Market. Just as good the next day! Next time I may cut down the garlic a little bit or use roasted garlic to cut the tang.

    Awww thanks so much for the reference. You’re an amazing cook and I’m honored. Now I’ll have to try your version! :)

    I just made this (almost) for an impromptu lunch for 3 today. I didn’t have almonds so substituted pistachios and walnuts, toasted per the directions. Used an English cuke and more grape halves than indicated as they were particularly good. Served on lettuce leaves and garnished with salted sunflower seeds. The wife and guest were equally complimentary. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Made this tonight with English cucumber. My husband (not normally much of a vegetable guy) and I both liked it. It’s easy, tasty and nutritious – everything I look for in a side dish.

    Can you use English cucumbers for this recipe? They usually have skins that are thinner and don’t require peeling.

    • Elise Bauer

      Yes. Any cucumber will do. The thin skinned ones you don’t have to peel.

    This is LITERALLY one of the best side salads I’ve ever had. So delicious and a crowd pleaser; it was all I could do from smacking peoples fingers away, picking at it until I served it!

    Made it tonight, and it was lovely — fresh, lively, and just a little sweet from the grapes, which I’ll use more of next time because I’m quite fond of grapes. A double recipe completely disappeared into four people, so round up if you’re not sure how much to make!

    Here’s a silly question – can I make a gazpacho using these ingredients? :-)

    I hardly buy chives. What is a good substitute for chives? Or should I just omit it altogether?

    This dish looks crisp and cool, perfect for a hot summer day. I’m going to try this out this weekend.
    I love your cobalt blue serving dish. Is it Moroccan?

    • Elise Bauer

      Hi Karrie, it sort of looks Moroccan, but I think it’s more likely Chinese. I bought it at Uncommon Objects, a quirky and fun antique/vintage store in Austin, Texas.

    Made this with dinner tonight and it was thumbs up all the way around. A really nice change.

    This sounds delicious! Might be good with watermelon too….
