CSA Cucumber, Fennel & Mint Salad Recipe

csa cucumber fennel & mint saladCSA veggies get super repetitive and boring this time of year, so it’s time to get creative with the summer harvests. That’s why I traded my typical salad-with-lettuce for a CSA Cucumber, Fennel & Mint version.

This actually came from one of our CSA‘s members, but I added a few extras for a more filling lunch.

CSA Cucumber, Fennel & Mint Salad Recipe

Ingredients:
  • 2 cucumbers – cubed
  • Fennel – slice stems into thin rounds
  • Oranges – 2 peeled and cubed
  • Mint – handful of leaves (or about 20-30 in my case.)
  • Feta: 1/4 cup (optional).
  • 1/2 cup or so of Sunflower seeds or sliced almonds – optional. (I felt like I needed to add some protein since I made this for lunch a few days.)
Dressing:
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • 1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 TB honey
  • Salt & pepper to taste
Method:
  1. Combine cukes, fennel & oranges and mix around. Add mint, feta & sunflower seeds.
  2. Combine dressing and mix within salad.
  3. Serve & Enjoy!
