This is my manlier variation of cucumber salad just for Hubster. Afterall, today is our fifth anniversary!!!! ❤ ❤ ❤ Thus, why today’s post is so delayed. Don’t worry, next week I’ll share some of our celebration details!
Sorry the pictures didn’t tun out too well, but the rainy day prevented me from getting a well-lit shot.
3 cucumbers, 5 strips of prosciutto*, 1/4 c. bleu cheese (or gorgonzola), 1/4 balsamic vinegar, 1/8 c. extra virgin olive oil, fresh cracked black pepper
Cut prosciutto into tiny strips. Peel alternating stripes on the cucumber and thinly slice cucumber. Mix together cheese, vinegar, oil and pepper. Drizzle over or toss with cucumbers and prosciutto and serve chilled.
* I reserve a portion of this salad, before adding the prosciutto. For my variation, I add crumbled turkey bacon.
