Strawberry Cucumber Salad with Honey Balsamic Dressing

This 4 ingredient salad is a total show stopper! It’s simplicity lets the strawberries and cucumbers shine. The only other ingredients are balsamic vinegar and honey. It is an impressive and healthy side dish to bring for your Easter potluck!

I realized after I made this that I should have cut the strawberries so that the slices were round, so that they would match the cucumbers. But strawberries are pretty no matter how you slice them, so don’t worry about it too much.


  •  2 pints strawberries, stemmed and sliced
  •  2 large cucumbers, roughly peeled and sliced thin
  •  1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
  •  1/2 cup honey


  1. Wash the strawberries and cucumbers. Stem the strawberries and slice them. You can slice as thin or as thick as you want.
  2. Peel the cucumbers roughly (see photos). Slice thin with a knife or a mandolin.
  3. In a medium size bowl, layer the strawberries and cucumbers in a fan shape, one after the other. Keep going all the way around. I like the have the bottom tip of the strawberry slices poking out the top, because they are more red and thus prettier.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar and honey. Drizzle over the salad and serve immediately.
  5. This salad can be prepared ahead of time, but don't dress it until right before serving.
  6. Store leftovers in an sealed tupperware. There will be quite a bit of liquid released if you have leftovers; I poured it on a green salad, and it was delicious!
