Cucumbers are one of my favorite foods. This recipe is so easy, but fresh, light, and DELICIOUS! The perfect summer dish.
-1 medium english cucumber
-Red wine vinegar
-Salt, pepper, & crushed red pepper
-4 fresh basil leaves
Chop up the cucumber into small, one-bite slices. In a mixing bowl, cover with olive oil & a dash of red wine vinegar. Don’t use too much red wine vinegar, especially if you use homemade vinegar like we do… otherwise it’s a bit too potent! Eye-ball the amounts and make sure each slice is covered.
Season with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper. Mix. Finally, top with fresh basil.
