Cucumber Strawberry Salad

From time to time I need to eat super light due to my hypothyroidism. I often will replace a heavier meal with just veggies or fruit, but that gets so boring! 

Today I found myself with farm fresh strawberries I got at the farmers market and a cucumber. I didn’t have lettuce or kale so I didn’t know how I would make this an enjoyable meal. And then did a quick search and saw I could make a cucumber strawberry salad. 


Recipe:

1 cucumber-washed and sliced thin

I pint strawberries-washed slices thin

2.5 oz goat cheese- honey, herbed or plain

1/3 cup chopped walnuts

Dressing:

1/3 cup honey 

1/6 cup balsamic vinegar-white or dark

Pinch of salt

Pinch of pepper

  1. After washing and slicing cucumber and strawberries put in a dish stacking them and alternating(shown in photo).
  2. Make salad dressing by combining vinegar and honey in a dressing shaker. Shake like crazy to combine vinegar and honey until smooth. 
  3. Pour dressing over cucumber and strawberries.
  4. Crumble goat cheese over dish.
  5. Sprinkle walnuts over dish.
  6. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste.


Serve immediately, if you manage to have leftovers put in a sealed container.
