Here, we’ll make a super fast cucumber salad with apple cider vinegar and dill. The crunch that you get with the chunky cucumbers and the roasted sunflower seeds is amazing! Hulled hemp seeds create an interesting contrast to the crunch because they are so tender. I also add some greens because greens are always welcome, especially if we want an energy-boosting snack.
You can also use other vinegars than apple cider vinegar. I recommend light vinegars like white grape or rice vinegar. Of course, it’s best if you can make them yourself. Avocado would be a nice addition, too, and a beautiful contrast to the rather rough texture of cucumbers.
When we think of salads we often think of a variety of vegetables in a bowl but you really don’t need that much for a delicious salad.
You instantly taste the fresh fruity acidity of the vinegar, followed by the cucumber and juices and dill aroma. The greens are a nice additive. The aroma of the freshly roasted sunflower seeds is opening up in your nose, the umami is settling and comforting.
