Summer and fall are the times of year I absolutely love because of the abundance of garden-fresh foods. It's the time when neighbors share the fruits (and vegetables) of their labors in their gardens. Cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, lettuces, zucchini, squash, herbs, and much more are happily and generously passed along to lucky recipients. That's why I named this chopped salad, "Your Neighbor's Garden" salad.
Your Neighbor's Garden Salad:
For my latest garden creation, the main ingredient I had on hand was cucumbers (given to me from a tennis friend). I then mixed in other raw vegetable ingredients from my fridge. Just chop, stir, and enjoy!
Note: Chopped cucumbers usually soften quickly, so I only made enough for a day or two.
It's hard to find vegetable combinations that don't mix well together, so feel free to get creative. The possibilities are limitless. The more colors of the rainbow, the better!
Don't forget to add in some herbs, which are ultra high in antioxidants. Plus, drizzle in some Kasandrinos olive oil to add in some healthy fat, which is delicious, aids in satiety, and improves the absorption of the fat-soluble vitamins.
