Simple Cucumber Salad

Cucumbers are in an abundance this summer and I have been getting them week after week from my crop share. This simple salad is a great way to prepare the cucumbers for an easy summer snack. It is cool and refreshing and the perfect healthy snack. 

Recipe yields 4 servings

2 large cucumbers
1 lemon
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp chili powder

Peel and slice both cucumbers into 1/4" slices. Place in a bowl.

Coat the cucumbers in juice from one lemon. Add the olive oil and stir to coat all cucumbers. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and chili powder.

Cover and refrigerate for up to 4 days. Enjoy as a healthy snack!
