Smashed Cucumber Salad

INGREDIENTS:

5 mini seedless or Persian cucumbers or 1 small English hothouse cucumber (about 12 oz.)
1 3×1″ strip lemon zest, very thinly sliced
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
¼ tsp. celery salt, plus more for serving

DIRECTIONS:

Gently smash cucumbers with a rolling pin or the back of a heavy knife just to break open.

Tear into irregular 2″ pieces and place in a medium bowl; season lightly with salt. Let sit at least 5 minutes and up to 1 hour.

Meanwhile, whisk lemon zest, lemon juice, oil, and ¼ tsp. celery salt in a medium bowl to combine; season dressing with salt.

Enjoy!
