Cucumber Salad with Chrystallized Ginger

The photo is without the dressing.
I bought crystallized ginger for a specific recipe.  I remember being pleased with the results and wondered why it took me so long to add this to my cupboard.  Unfortunately, I forgot about the ginger and have not used it enough.  When I made this salad which called for raisins, I decided that the crystallized ginger could only make it better.  Success.

In the past, I have found cucumber salad can get very boring and I have tried different dressings to make it more interesting.  The little bit of ginger made a difference and next time, I would like to add a little bit more.

Cucumber Salad with Crystallized Ginger


4 Persian Cucumbers, thin sliced
1 small red onion, thin sliced
handful of yellow raisins
1/4 cup chopped crystallized ginger

1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2  cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon dried dill


Combine cucumbers, red onion, raisins and ginger.

Add dressing of the ingredients mixed together.

Chill before serving.

Eat and enjoy.
