Moroccan Cucumber Salad with Olives

When you’re feeling like it’s just too hot outside to cook, this fresh and cool Moroccan cucumber salad is what you need. Not only does it only take a few minutes to throw together, it is also so crisp and invigorating served alongside just about any main dish. 

This refreshing salad is simple, but demonstrates a complexity of sweet, briny, and herby flavors. I like to serve this salad with Moroccan-spiced chicken or fish because the cucumbers really balance the heat. So tonight make this salad, sit outside, fire up the grill, pour a glass of wine, and have a lovely  evening. Ahhh, I love summer. 

Ingredients: 

2 cucumbers, sliced and quartered

¼ c. kalamata olives

2 tsp. white vinegar

1 Tbsp. olive oil

1 Tbsp. agave

1 tsp. oregano

1 tsp. thyme

Salt to taste

Combine all ingredients except for the olives in a large serving bowl and stir to combine. Chill for at least 30 minutes. Add the olives before serving. Enjoy!
