Description

Save time and spiralize crisp cucumber instead of chopping it for this easy, healthy vegetable side. Want to make it a meal? Just add grilled chicken, shrimp or canned chickpeas.

Directions

  1. Whisk oil, vinegar, oregano, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
  2. Using a spiral vegetable slicer with the chipper blade attachment (for thick noodles), cut cucumber lengthwise into "noodles." Cut the noodles into 2-inch lengths.
  3. Add the cucumber noodles, tomatoes, onion, cheese and olives to the bowl and toss to coat with the dressing. Serve topped with more oregano, if desired.
