Balsamic Cucumber and Carrot Ribbon Salad

Pretty, pretty, pretty. And it doesn’t take much. If you own a vegetable peeler you’re in business.


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Ready Time : 15 min




  • 4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons finely chopped shallots
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large cucumber
  • 3 large carrots, peeled
  • 1 pint multicolored cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 cups watercress, cut into 2-inch pieces


In a small bowl, combine vinegar, oil, shallots, mayonnaise, honey, salt and pepper and whisk well until dressing comes together. Set aside.
Using a vegetable peeler, peel cucumber and carrots into long ribbons. Transfer to a large bowl and add tomatoes and watercress. Add dressing and toss lightly to coat well. Serve immediately or refrigerate undressed for up to 1 hour.

    The dressing is amazing, you can use it on so many things, I can’t wait to use it on grilled portabella mushrooms. Thanks!
