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.
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.
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:)
