I hesitate calling this a recipe because it is so darned simple, even a caveman could whip this up. With his eyes closed. But I am calling it one, and I am sharing it because sometimes it’s okay to share no-brainer uber simple recipes right? Especially ones that taste amazing and ones that you will make all summer long. And ones that are completely fat free, vegan and gluten-free? That’s okay right?

And its also okay because May is National Salad Month. You. Didn’t. Know!!? {feigns incredulous dismay} That’s ok ay I didn’t know either. In the end of April I was thinking about doing a month of salads for the month of June. Then I posted this risotto on on May 2nd and what do you know? I got an email from a PR rep about something or other and she said, “As you know, May is National Salad Month.” I was like, “Um No! I didn’t know and now I am totally doing it!”

So, anywhoo,  we’re going to ignore the little risotto incident for now. And, I am going to go about my business continuing to share a couple of different salads with you each week all month long. So far I have shared:

Spinach Salad with Steak Onion and Date Kebabs with Orange and Blue Cheese

Marinated Mushroom and Fiddlehead Salad with Swiss Cheese

Lemony Carrot Salad with Mustard Seeds and Feta

Grilled Potato Salad with Ramps

So I thought this simple cucumber salad with chives would be a nice basic contrast with the others I have done so far. Even though cucumbers aren’t in season yet here in Vermont, they will be in season elsewhere soon enough. And once they start appearing in the garden and farmers markets it is hard to keep up with them. So inevitably, you’ll make this recipe over and over. It is completely fat free, and so easy to make. I used my mandolin to make it and it was so simple.
