I remember taking a cooking class from the amazing plant-based chef, Chad Sarno, where he showed us how to beautifully contain a salad using long strips of cucumber. He joked when he said, “now you can charge $12.50 for lettuce!” I’m giving you this idea for free!!! The salad is filled with thinly sliced cucumbers, cherry tomatoes from my garden, sunflower sprouts, and toasted sliced pistachios, and adorned with a creamy cucumber dressing. Not only is this salad totally alkalizing, but it’s also the perfect summertime salad as it’s super hydrating, refreshing and anti-aging. Serve this, and your guests will be impressed!
