Cucumber summer squash salad with cheese

Usually when you hear the word SALAD you think of a bowl, full of chopped pieces from different vegetables, mixed into a colorful combination. That is not what you are going to see today…I chose to show you something different. You may even think this is not a salad. Because it looks like…I don’t know, it just doesn’t look like a salad. 🙂 And let me tell you: I love it! The fact, that it is so easy to make and at the same time so delicious and so original and pretty, you should try it without any doubt.

The interesting thing about the look of this cucumber summer squash salad is the color. Most of the salads look really colorful, something like a rainbow, right? But this salad surprises with a very simple look, mainly in green. You could actually mistaken the cucumber with the summer squash. I think it looks really classy.

The white color of the cheese gives a super cool ascent and also some fullness to the salad, which is any way very low on calories. You maybe know, that cucumber and summer squash contain mainly water…So, I would recommend this salad, if you are trying to loose some weight or you just want to try out some fresh and light meal. It goes great with grilled bread. So good!

Don’t be afraid to improvise. Try to add some garlic. If you bake it in the oven for about 10 minutes (important, don’t peel the garlic, when you bake it!), it will become super tasty. You could also make a dressing with some lime juice. A table spoon of soy sauce would also match this salad very well. There are so many things you could do with the cucumber summer squash salad. Sparkle some sunflower seeds to make it richer or add some shredded egg, which will go perfectly with the white cheese. I could go on like this forever: giving new ideas and suggestions. Here I will show you the basic of the salad, if you want you could create a brand new, upgraded version!
