- 3 medium cucumbers (or even better to get 5-6 super small cucumbers which are similar to ones found in Haiti — they can sometimes be found in Asian markets)
- 1/2 cup coconut vinegar or apple cider vinegar
- 1/3 cup light oil (like grapeseed or light olive oil*)
- 2 tablespoons coconut nectar (or substitute your favorite sweetener)
- 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon white pepper (can substitute with black pepper if needed)
- 1/4 teaspoon ground oregano
Clean and thinly slice the cucumbers (using a mandoline is helpful) into a medium-large bowl. Mix with the remaining ingredients. Cover and let sit for at least 45 minutes to blend the flavors, stirring occasionally. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed, then serve.
*Note: this would be delicious using coconut oil but just leave it at room temperature — do not chill before serving or else the oil will harden.
