In Purrsuit Of Flavors ~ Salad Time!

Well, a month has flown by and now we are going to have some salad…good stuff on hot days.

So here are a couple of easy salads that we love and enjoy often.

Creamy Cucumbers

1 Large Cucumber, thinly sliced. (Peeled if regular, not needed to peel if an ‘English’ variety)

1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

1Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar, (or you can use lemon juice)

2 Tablespoons chopped Chives. (Or sub green onions. you can increase these if you like)

1 drop Tabasco. can increase to taste.

1/2 Teaspoon dill seed…or dill weed

1 dash black pepper…or more to taste.

Put sliced cucumbers in a colander, and let drain for at least 30 minutes. (Discard juice or use in smoothies, etc.)

Put all ingredients in a large bowl, Mix well, and chill well till serving.

This is great even without the yogurt…Sometimes we use a thinly sliced red onion half instead of chives.


Carrot/Pineapple/Raisin Melange

1/2 cup juice packed crushed pineapple, (Do not drain)

2 cups shredded carrots

1/4 cup raisins…(or more if you like).

Toss all gently together, chill well and serve.

Colorful and delicious!


Both these recipes are great on hot days:)
