Cucumber Salad

First, I would like to say that when I look for recipes to cook, I get frustrated when I find one that needs overnight preparation!  I fully agree and understand the need to marinate and letting flavors to soak in, but I would like a heads-up so I don’t settle too fast. So here is your warning! Any recipes from here on out that I post will have an “overnight” sub-category for your convenience.  Now for the good part!

Cucumber salad is a great to pack as a snack for lunch.  It is so refreshing and perfect to wake you back up, easy to make and super delicious.  There’s not much more to say than to try my recipe and enjoy!

1 seedless cucumber
2 green onions
2 T white vinegar
2 T olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Step 1- peel the skin off of your cucumber and slice thinly (preferably with a mandolin) and place in a container with a lid.

Step 2- cut up the green onion, add to the cucumbers.  add the white vinegar, oil, salt and pepper and shake.

Refrigerate overnight for best results.


easy, delicious guacamole

I came home today and saw two perfectly ripe avocados waiting to be made into guacamole! It seems redundant to post such a simple recipe, but why not!  After all, i did make it. So, “without further ado, I bring to you” (in Eminem’s voice from the song “Business) GUACAMOLE!

2 avocados
1 roma tomato, diced
1/4 medium onion, diced
juice of 1/2 lime
1/2 green onion
salt and pepper

step 1- pit the avocado, and slice into cubes and place in a bowl
step 2- roll the lime a few times to make it juicy, cut in half and squeeze onto the avocado
step 3- muddle the avocado until it is smooth and creamy
step 4- add salt and pepper, snip in green onion,dice onions and tomato and put it in the bowl
* before dicing the onions, cut it in half and separate each shell 

step 5-mix and eat!
