Ingredients

  • 1-1 ¼ lbs. seedless cucumber
  • ¼ cup oil avocado or olive
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 1 tsp. white wine vinegar
  • ½ tsp. ginger grated
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • 6 oz. lump crab meat
  • 2 small avocados thinly sliced
  • 3-4 Tbsp. mint finely chopped

Instructions

  1. Thinly slice cucumbers into ⅛” slices with either a mandolin or by using a knife.

  2. Lay the cucumber out into a single layer and sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon of salt. Let sit for 10-15 minutes and then dab any excess moisture with a paper towel.
  3. Whisk together the oil, lemon juice, vinegar, ginger, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl.
  4. Combine cucumber slices and oil mixture in a large bowl. Toss until the cucumber is well coated.
  5. Add in the crab, sliced avocado, and chopped mint. Mix until just combined, being careful not to over-mix. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

This Cucumber Avocado Salad is definitely best when served immediately. However, there are steps you can take to prepare:

  • To Prep-Ahead: You can whisk the sauce together and chop the mint. Save the rest for just before serving.
  • To Store: Keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator. But do not make it more than 1 hour in advance. The cucumber will continue to release moisture and make it soggy.
