I don’t have a spiralizer. While I think they are cool, I also feel like they are a fad. Plus, I don’t need another unitasker to clutter my already full cabinets. Besides, my mandoline slicer has attachments that will julienne any vegetable, which gives just about the same result that a spiralizer would. A quick pass through the mandoline produced the perfect bed of cucumber “noodles” for this summer salad, which made for a delicious dinner and a quick lunch, too. Do yourself a favor and make this before the bounty of fresh summer produce withers away. You will not be disappointed!
2 Seedless Cucumbers
1 cup Cherry Tomatoes, halved
1/3 cup Kalamata Olives, pitted and chopped
1/4 Red Onion, thinly sliced (I omitted)
4 tablespoons Hummus
1/2 cup Feta Cheese, crumbled
Salt and Pepper, to taste
Julienne the cucumbers using a mandoline slicer or a spiralizer. Divide the cucumber onto plates and top with the tomatoes, olives, and onion. Spoon hummus onto the center of the noodles and sprinkle the top with feta. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve immediately.
