I have an on and off love affair with cucumbers. I either want them ALL the time or want NOTHING to do with them. Not sure if there is a rhyme or reason to my cravings, perhaps it is seasonal.
My cravings have been cucumberly and tomato-happy lately. Recently I was craving salsa and I was craving cucumbers and I thought “Why not do both?”
So, with trepidation, I did.
Two great tastes that… taste… like two great tastes put together?
It hit the spot fantastic for me that day, but I’m not sure this combo will be making regular appearances.
I think that’s how cravings work… even the oddest combos taste perfect when you crave them (not that this is so strange but in my mind it just doesn’t sound that appealing).
What I’m saying is: Kids? You may not want to try this at home.
Continuing my cucumber and tomato dalliance, I made this quick little number and wanted to share.
I call it Vegetable Fruit Salad.
Get it? Cucumbers are technically a fruit. Tomatoes are a fruit (unless they are in pizza sauce in which case the Government declares them as technically a vegetable serving).
But really? I know we all think of them as veggies.
Anyhow this salad? This I can recommend.
I chopped some onions, tomatoes and cucumbers and added a few dashes of red wine vinegar and about a tbsp of Greek yogurt. A sprinkle of sweetener and a hefty helping of S&P and shook it like a Polaroid.
Speaking of pictures (forced segue), come play with me on The Instagram. Please?
