So maybe sometimes I don't read the directions right.
This was still tasty, even though I butchered it from the original recipe.
I have been wanting to try spiralizing cucumbers. It didn't disappoint, but I wish they had been thicker.
I saw this recipe on Facebook as "This 5-Incredient Salad Will Have You Dancing Around the Campfire!"
So anyway I made it, BUT, there was not a tomato to be found within 20 miles of us, so if you make it, dice up a tomato and chunk it in there.
What I used:
1 cucumber, spiralized
5 strips of bacon
Garlic powder, s&p
3 tbl of Hellman's mayo
Ya'll know that I have issues with my food being wet. I knew the cucumbers may have a bit of drippage....but not like this.
If you make this, don't be like me. Dice the cucumber into bite size pieces, and dry them with a paper towel before assembling.
I spiralized the cucumber....
I sprinkled a little salt and pepper on it.
I cooked bacon, then tossed it about in the cucumber.
I put 3 tablespoons of mayo in a bowl, shook garlic powder into it vigorously, with a little more salt and pepper, and then tossed it all together.
If I wouldn't have tried to get all fancy pants with the cucumber, patted it dry, went to the grocery store and got a tomato, coated it and the cucumber with more salt, this would have been glorious.
I got a soppy mixture of mayonnaise water.
I just heard my mother gagging from miles away....
It was still very good!!!!!!
I enjoy sports, binge watching TV, food, reading, and slightly bearded men.
