Cool as a Cuke

I love to cook; however, the hot and lazy days of summer cause me to slow down and give my stove a rest. I put this salad together today and thought some of you might enjoy my rendition of a cucumber salad.

Recipe 1B

MJ’s Cucumber Salad

1/2 English cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced

1/3 small red onion, thinly sliced

1 tomato, peeled and diced

¼ green pepper, thinly sliced

1 stalk celery, thinly sliced or diced

2 T. olive oil

2 T. balsamic vinegar

Sprouted organic pumpkin seeds with sea salt

Combine first five ingredients and toss together. Add the oil and vinegar and stir to cover.

When serving onto plates, sprinkle pumpkin seeds on top. Salt may be added to taste.

Makes 2 large or 4 small salads.
