Looking for a fresh after-workout snack or a light side salad? There is nothing more refreshing than cucumber with cilantro and a hint of jalapeño!
Done in no time – but tastes even better if you leave it to marinate for a few minutes.
If you made it in advance and kept it in the fridge – let the salad sit on the counter for a little while before serving – the olive oil solidifies slightly when it’s cold.
