Cucumber Onion Salad

I love the green colors

I love the crispy and fresh taste

I love the simplicity for preparing

So you are right, I love cucumber so much!

Cucumber is always my firstly choice whenever I want to make an easy and fresh salad. And the salad today is super easy and very, very low in calories. For the eating in my life, I am always seeking a balance between different foods. Sometimes, I may indulge myself in some dessert or some traditional deep-frying food, or really spicy and hot Sichuan dishes, but for most of time in my daily cooking, I eat mild (only a little spicy) and healthy meals.

Cucumber Onion Salad

The two main ingredients for today’s recipe are cucumber and onion. I use white onion instead of purple onion. Personally I think purple onions have much stronger taste than white onions. What’s your feeling?
