This cucumber salad is as simple as a salad gets, with just two whole food ingredients (without counting the dressing).

It’s filled with flavor, though, thanks to Herbes de Provence, a traditional blend of dried herbs from southern France that you can buy premixed in a spice jar.

Typically, the blend contains thyme, savory, oregano, and marjoram. Sometimes it also includes rosemary or lavender. No matter the approach, it’s incredibly aromatic.
