1
English (seedless) cucumber, ends removed, cut in half then in thin strips (using vegetable peeler)
2
oz shaved Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • 1 In blender, place Dressing ingredients. Cover; blend on high speed until thoroughly combined. Set aside.

Use a vegetable peeler to cut cucumber into thin lengthwise strips. Cut only down to the seeds, then turn and cut the next side.
