What kinds of cucumber to use for this salad
- This cucumber and avocado salad uses mini cucumbers. They are easy to prepare and to mount, compared to big cucumbers because they have less water.
- They're crispy and have a delicate flavor. I find them sweeter than mature cucumbers.
- Mini cucumbers have tender skins compared to mature cucumbers, making this salad enjoyable.
- However, you can use thin mature cucumbers but slice them thinly. In this case, you might need to remove the seeds because you don't want this salad to be watery.
Do I need to peel cucumbers?
- No, in almost all plants, vitamins are mostly found on the skin because that's the part that's in contact with the soil or the sun. So peeling the skin would be like throwing almost all the good nutrients.
- Choose firm dark green cucumbers that are fresh.
- English cucumbers, in general, don't require any peeling as their skin is soft.
Serve this cucumber salad as an appetizer with some bread or make bruschetta for your picnic or indoor parties. If you've to prepare this salad in advance, please, don't salt it as the salt will make it soggy.
