Sweet and Sour Cucumber Salad


2 large cucumbers

1 small onion

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons white vinegar

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1 clove fresh garlic, minced

1 teaspoon dill

1 teaspoon dried cilantro

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

½ to 1 tablespoon powdered stevia

2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds


Toast sesame seeds in pan for a minute or two. Be careful because they cook fast! Then set aside.

Spiralize or cut your cucumber and onion into small chunks. Put into a large bowl.

In a separate bowl, combine the oil, vinegar, lemon, garlic, spices and stevia. Mix it up and taste to see if you need to add anything.

Toss the dressing over the cucumbers and onions and add the toasted sesame seeds at the end.

Fresh cilantro would be tasty addition with this recipe, as well as red pepper flakes to add some spice! The recipe tastes great if it sits for a bit!
