How To Grow Fresh Herbs on Your Counter All Year Long

We got this great countertop Aerogarden which is fantastic for growing herbs in the winter.  We actually got it when we lived in a smaller apartment, but even now that we own an acreage we still use it year-round! 

I love growing herbs on my countertop like fresh basil, dill, mint, sage, thyme, parsley, and lemon balm – perfect for this cucumber salad. It uses LED lights and water, so no messy soil needed – you can have fresh herbs at your fingertips any time.

I love picking a few springs of parsley to chop on pastas, adding basil leaves to soups, and tossing some dill in with my pasta salads. It also makes a great gift for anyone who would like fresh herbs… no big kitchen or green thumb required!

What’s In This Cucumber and Herb Salad Recipe

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Cucumbers – thinly sliced
  • Rice vinegar: I love this sweet & tangy rice vinegar, I always keep this seasoned vinegar stocked in my pantry for dressings and salads.
  • Fresh Dill
  • Parsley
  • Basil
  • Green Onion or Chives
  • Granulated Sugar: I like this organic sugar for my recipes, it has a really nice texture in this bread, I’d recommend organic sugar for baking.
  • Light Sesame Oil: The sesame oil gives the perfect sweet flavor to the sauce of this dish. Light sesame oil is traditional in a lot of Asian dishes, and will give your noodles the perfect flavor.
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Red Chili Pepper Flakes: for a little heat! I like to add a few shakes to this recipe to give this dish a nice complex depth of flavor.
