I want to re post this recipe that I learned from Five ingredient Fix.
Honeydew is in season.
I have made this with regular cucumbers and different kinds of yogurt and without the jalapeno.
It was called Fresh Cucumber Salad.
• 1 English cucumber, peeled and diced
• 1 cup (1/4 whole) honeydew, finely diced
• Kosher salt
• 2 cups Greek yogurt
• 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
• 1 jalapeno, seeded and finely minced
I used ½ of a large English cucumber, two cups of honeydew,
yogurt to cover and a teeny bit of jalapeno. I am a wimp when it comes to spicy.
But I am so excited to share how much I loved this odd salad.
I haven’t purchased a honeydew melon in so long I can’t even remember if I have ever purchased one! And a jalapeno…first time ever!
I liked this so well that when I finished my lunch today I made a second batch with the left over ingredients. Very exciting.
It tasted cool and sweet with just the right amount of spice. (practically none)
I highly recommend this delicious, weird salad.
UPDATE: Don't worry about the measurements. Lots of honeydew, lots of cucumber, enough yogurt to cover. Also, I put cucumber and honeydew in strainer with some salt and let it drain a bit before adding the yogurt.
