Is it me….or is summer still hanging on STRONG right now?!!  Despite the rando thunderstorm we had the other day, it has still been so hot in California, which means I don’t want to cook up anything.  I’ve been craving crisp, easy, fresh salads and this Cucumber Prosciutto and Apple Salad does not disappoint!

This is a great salad to make ahead of time for you to have for lunches during the week.  And it takes like .0002 seconds to make. Okay, okay, maybe like 5 minutes. It really depends on whether or not you are a spiralizing ninja or not!!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 2 cucumbers, spiralized
  • 1/2 apple, matchsticked

  1. Spiralize your cucumber and place on a paper towel. Put another paper towel on top to soak up all the water from the cucumbers.
  2. Matchstick your apple. To matchstick, slice apple in half, then slice that half in thirds. Place down and slice into pieces that look like little matchsticks.
  3. Take your cucumber and place in a large bowl. Add your apple sticks and then tear your prosciutto and place into bowl of spiralized cucumber.
  4. Mix well then squeeze lemon all over the top of the salad

Just a few notes:

  1. Make sure you pat the spiralized cucumber with a paper towel otherwise you will have a bowl full of water.
  2. You can make ahead of time and then place in an air tight container. I like to put a paper towel over the top before I close the lid and then I squeeze a little more lemon over the top to freshen it back up right before I eat it.
  3. Don’t have a spiralizer?! You can cut the cucumber and apple into rounds, and stack it….cucumber, prosciutto, apple.
