Whip up this easy low-carb cucumber Caesar in less than 10 mins

Print this recipe
I love a good Caesar salad, with its creamy, salty dressing and Parmesan cheese. The recipe below makes it easier than ever to enjoy all the crunchy deliciousness of a classic Caesar — but without the carbs. Instead of a romaine-based salad with crunchy croutons, this one starts with crunchy cucumber chunks.
The salad is super easy to make. It also keeps well in the fridge for a few days. I always make a huge bowl of it and munch on it whenever I get the urge. It makes a yummy snack. Add some canned salmon or tuna or shredded chicken to turn it into a meal.
