Cucumber-Dill Hummus

Here’s another recipe you can use some of your garden cucumbers in! Or, if you’re like me, the cucumbers you buy at the Farmers’ Market! If you’ve never tried making hummus before, this would be a great time to try it out—you can whip it up in a blender or food processor—it’s very easy to make! This hummus has a mild cucumber and dill flavor. iIf you really like dill, you might want to add in a little more for a stronger dill flavor.

These flavors are all great together and it’s kinda nice eating a pizza that’s good for you! Continue reading

Strawberry Salsa

Strawberry Salsa @ NancyC

One of the things I love about this salsa is that it’s such a summery recipe and I really do love the summer season—even if it can get a little too hot at times!  This salsa is made with some of my favorite fruits and veggies…strawberries, avocado, and cucumber! It’s a great twist on your typical salsa if you’re wanting to try something different. The strawberries and honey make it naturally sweet and the lime juice, chopped green chiles, and pepper give it a mild spiciness (use chopped jalapeño if you really want it spicy).

Creamy Cucumber Salad

Something cool and creamy sounds good on a hot day, doesn’t it? You might be thinking “ice cream,” but I’m actually talking about this Creamy Cucumber Salad! I really like cucumber salads and I especially like the creamy dressing in this one! It’s made with plain Greek yogurt to lighten it up a little, although you could substitute sour cream if you wanted to.
