It's a Wrap! Fork It Over: June ActiveRain Recipe Challenge

 

Many thanks to each of you for participating and offering a favorite recipe during the month of June. Kathy Streib and I enjoyed the variety of choices offered, especially those that were handed down through time.

 

From pasta dishes to chicken kebobs to tasty sides and salads that compliment the summer season, they're all sure to please the palate! Here is a bonus, low calorie recipe with all produce picked from Nerdin Gardens.

 

Fresh Lemon Cucumber Salad

Prep Time 15 minutes | Serves 3 as a side dish

Ingredients
• 2 (6 and 1/2 cups) large cucumbers
• 1 cup cherry tomatoes
• 1/2 cup yellow sweet bell pepper
• 3 tablespoons parsley
• 2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
• 1 and 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• 1 and 1/2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
• Salt and pepper


Instructions
• Peel the cucumber if desired. I like to leave the peels on as I believe it adds flavor and texture plus good nutrients. 

• Thinly slice the cucumbers. (I use a box grater with a vegetable slicing surface and it takes a few minutes).

• Chop the cherry tomatoes into small pieces. Measure the cherry tomatoes once chopped to make one cup. Finely chop the yellow sweet bell pepper.

• Add the tomato and yellow pepper in with the cucumbers.

• Finely chop the parsley and add it in. If you aren't eating this right away, place the mixture in the fridge to chill.

• In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, lemon zest, olive oil, white wine vinegar, and salt + pepper.

• Right before serving, add the dressing to the cucumbers and adjust to taste. (Add more lemon, salt, or pepper, if desired.)

Enjoy immediately!

Recipe Notes
This salad is best eaten right after being made and doesn't store very well. It's also best when the vegetables have previously been chilled.

 

***Points will be tallied within 10 days and awarded to those who followed the rules of the challenge. Again, THANK YOU ALL for sharing, it's one of the reasons ActiceRain remains the best real estate related platform of all time!

Glad you enjoyed it, Carol Williams! Now to see if it can be turned into a cookbook. I'm thinking maybe an online one in a format that everyone can open and take from...need to think about that.
