Shaved Cucumber Salad

Cucumbers are very abundant this time of year, and what better way to enjoy them than in this light, crisp salad from Everyday Food?


3 English cucumbers

2 stalks celery, reserving leaves if desired

1/2 medium white onion

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup fresh cilantro

2 1/2 teaspoons champagne vinegar

With a vegetable peeler, shave cucumbers into wide ribbons, stopping when you reach seeds; reserve 1 center. Thinly slice celery stalks and onion; place in a large bowl along with cucumber ribbons. In a blender, puree reserved cucumber center, mayonnaise, cilantro, and vinegar; season with salt and pepper and add to bowl. Toss to combine and top with celery leaves if desired.
