Cucumber Ribbons Salad Recipe – A Really Light & Refreshing Salad
Cucumber ribbons salad recipe gets prepared in no time and goes very well with chicken and fish. The orange dressing and cucumber are a match made in heaven.
You may have heard that tomatoes are a fruit and not a vegetable. Well, cucumbers fall under that same umbrella. What? Tomatoes were a surprise way back when I heard that news – but at least they are sweetish, round and colourful.
Cucumbers were quite a shocking revelation to me as there is nothing remotely fruity about cucumbers, however, they are actually a fruit. Really! They contain seeds and grow from the ovaries of flowering plants which is the definition of a fruit.
Does this make all vegetable males? I’m afraid to ask. Cucumbers are members of the plant family Cucurbitaceae, which also makes them related to squashes and melons.
But there is more to a cucumber than just water which makes them really hydrating and great to eat in summer. Cucumbers also contain Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, Folic Acid, Calcium, Vitamin C, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, and Zinc.
Enjoy this scrumptious & refreshing salad on its own or with your favourite meat dish. I paired this recently with my chicken cordon bleu recipe and the results were outstanding.
Cucumbers are 19% water and contribute just 16 calories. They are a rich source of vitamin K and form a part of the daily salad in an Indian meal.
Are you a lover or a hater? Cucumbers have a reputation for being boring. I don’t agree. I love cucumbers and this salad, which is refreshing and definitely not boring, brings it!
This salad is a delicious and a hydrating accompaniment to any meal. Enjoy the freshness of cucumbers and orange. It’s delightful.

A Note by Cucumbers 🙂
Cucumbers have a lot of water which makes them a super healthy snack but in salads, they continue to release water so this salad should only be made just before needed.
Otherwise, it will be sitting in a pool of water. To store any leftovers, pour off excess water before refrigerating and toss with a bit more vinaigrette and fresh mint to refresh.
