Guest Chef… for a cause!

Would you like to be a guest chef?” is a phrase I’ve been dying to hear! It finally happened a few weeks ago, when Janis Smythe,  the chair of Hillsdale’s “Green Solutions” Committee, contacted me.

Recipe: Cool Cucumber Dill Salad

When you hear “as cool as a cucumber”, doesn’t it make you wonder if there are other vegetable attributes? You know, as sensitive as a tomato, as difficult as a mango, as sophisticated as an aubergine, as uncaring as a fig?

Fresh DillOK, maybe I should leave my comedy routine to the bananas and go back into the kitchen to show you how to make a delicious, fresh cucumber salad. This recipe uses my “Sarah’s Home on the Ranch” dip mix, which shows you again that most of my products have multiple uses.

Ingredients:

3 large cucumbers, well washed but not peeled
1 large white onion
¼ c olive oil
¼ c white vinegar
½ t sea salt
1 ½ t “Sarah’s Home on the Ranch” seasoning blend by Your Spice of Life*

* or substitute dill, parsley and black pepper, to taste

Method:

  • Slice the cucumbers as thinly as possible, and place in a large bowl
  • Slice the onions into very thin, long strips and add to cucumbers
  • In a small bowl, combine the oil, vinegar, salt and seasoning, mixing well
  • Add to cucumber mixture and stir to coat well.
  • Refrigerate at least an hour to allow flavors to meld.
