RECIPE: Shaved cucumber salad

Difficulty level: EASY


3 English cucumbers shaved into wide ribbons with a vegetable peeler (stop when you get to the seeds. Reserve one center). You can also use 6 smaller cucumbers and reserve 2 centers.
2 stalks celery thinly sliced
1/2 white onion thinly sliced
1/4 C mayonnaise
1/4 C cilantro
2.5 teaspoons sherry vinegar

Combine cucumber ribbons, celery and onion in a bowl
In a blender, purée cucumber center, mayonnaise, cilantro and vinegar.
Toss salad and season with salt and pepper

Note: I like to include the celery leaves as well.
