One of my favorite meals that my mother used to make us growing up was stir fried cucumbers. You may find this strange, but salad actually tastes wonderful cooked! Here’s my spin on a Chinese style stir fried salad. The ingredients are mostly picked for their crunchiness, but if you want, you can add things like spinach to the mix. Anything you like really!
- 1 red onion
- 1 cucumber or 2 baby cucumbers
- 1 large tomato
- 1 cup of snow peas
- Olive Oil
- Fresh Basil
Cut all vegetables up into very small pieces/slices. The key to a good stir fry is cutting things up very small. This way, they cook very fast, leaving more flavor and crunchiness, and without over cooking the nutrition out of everything.
Heat oil. Saute chopped onion for a mintue before adding the rest of the vegetables to the mix. Stir fry for 2-3 minutes on high.
Add salt, pepper and fresh basil to taste.
