Beg, Borrow & Meal: Cucumber Salad

This weekend we enjoyed the summer-like weather, by noshing on a refreshing cucumber & dill salad at local watering hole, Low Brau.

Cucumber Dill Salad @ LOW BRAU

At home, I recreated a version of my own using goat milk yogurt, tomato and green onions.

Mix two large spoonfuls of yogurt with one peeled and sliced cucumber, one sliced tomato, and 3 chopped green onions. Season with salt and pepper. As easy to prepare as it sounds!

The latest @farmfreshtoyou shipment delivered cucumbers, which wouldn’t normally inspire me in the kitchen. But I’m not gonna lie – I developed a small crush, and satisfied my craving for light weekend lunches:

  • Thinly sliced cucumbers worked well in place of lettuce for a taco-like salad with black beans, tomatoes, crumbled tortilla chips and Ranch dressing.
  • Diced cucumber, tomatoes and sour cream (seasoned with salt, pepper, basil and freshly shaved parmesan) made a tasty Greek-inspired filling inside a tortilla “wrap” warmed on the grill pan
