Cucumber-Celery Slaw

FullSizeRender-49

Sometimes the simplest things are the best. Case in point this cool yet spicy salad from Food 52. The ingredients are minimal: cucumbers, celery, pepperoncini and parsley. The celery provides crunch while the cucumbers and parsley add a coolness that tames the fieriness of the peppers. That’s it. Do taste your pepperoncini before adding them to the salad though since not all peppers have the same level of heat.

The salad can be used to top burgers or as an easy side dish for grilled meat. It really is so easy.

CUCUMBER-CELERY SLAW

3/4 cup cucumber, peeled and sliced into half coins

3/4 cup celery, both leaves and stalks, chopped

1/4 cup pepperoncini, sliced

1/4 Italian parsley, chopped

Pinch of sugar

Salt & pepper to taste

 

  • Combine all of the ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
  • Allow to sit for at least 1/2 an hour before serving.

Serves 4
