Shaved Cucumber and Honeydew Greek Salad is a beautiful monochromatic presentation. I love setting it down on the table. People usually don’t realize that it has honeydew melon, and they are pleasantly surprised. Buy your cucumbers and melon at your favorite Farmers Market! 

Cucumber HoneyDew Salad

About The Salad

I use a mandoline to get the super-thin ribbons of cucumber and melon. The cucumber remains crunchy, and the ribbons give it visual texture. The oregano flavor is distinctive and surprisingly fresh-tasting. Oregano is cooked into a sauce or dish, but not served fresh. The tang of good Greek feta and white wine vinegar finishes off the salad with zing. The green peppercorns provide the peppery flavor we all love, while not disturbing the monochromatic palate.
