Intro

Cucumber Wakame Salad

Looking for a way to use up all those cucumbers from your garden?

This recipe is packed with nutrients and it’s delicious

Ingredients

3 large cucumbers, 1 T. Agave syrup, 2 T. Wakame flakes, tsp sea salt,  2 T rice vinegar

Directions

Soak the wakame flakes with water in a bowl until rehydrated – about  15-20 minutes.

Next, use  veg spiral or a food processor ( large flat blade) to slice the cucumber thinly.  In a colander toss the cucumber with salt and let sit for 15 minutes.
Rinse the cucumber very thoroughly with water, and press firmly to drain all excess moisture. Pat dry with a paper towel. Drain the wakame, then press and pat as well to discard moisture.

Combine the wakame and cucumber in a medium bowl, and toss with agave syrup and rice vinegar. If needed, drain once more before serving.
