Sliced cucumbers, a splash of white vinegar, and salt is typically all you need to create the perfect summer side dish.
But if you’re looking to up your r-cucumber salad game, consider blogger Paula Hingley’s recipe which involves pounding those cuke slices.
“This cucumber salad recipe is awesome because it’s simple to make, refreshing to eat, and you get to take out your aggression by smashing a cucumber with a rolling pin. How fun is that?” says Hingley of howtomakedinner.com, and host of How To Make Dinner on YouTube. “The smashing extracts maximum flavor out of the cucumber, which is really what makes this salad special.”
