This was delicious! I wasn't sure how to incorporate the cilantro and mint and oil, so I just added them to the dressing after the paprika and orange juice were well whisked. This salad is really interesting, and I would even have it as a snack.

This was phenomenal! I've made it several times, occasionally replacing the cucumber with celery with equally delicious results. It's also inspired a lazier regular on my menu - thinly sliced fennel, celery, and green apple dressed with olive oil, lemon juice, and salt.
