 Simple Cucumber Salad Recipe



  • 1 cucumber chopped
  • ½ cup olives chopped
  • ½ of a medium red onion diced
  • 2 TBS extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Place all of the ingredients in a mason jar.  Close and shake the jar until the oil is evenly distributed on the content of the jar.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.

To make this salad creamier, you can omit the olive oil and use a paleo ranch dressing instead.  I have tried different paleo ranch dressing and have to say my favorite is the one from the Everyday Paleo cookbook.
