I want to gift someone with these good books, so I’ll do a drawing on Monday the 21st for a box of one each of the books I post about (coming soon). To be entered, please do two things for me:
1)Post on your Facebook, twitter, or blog a note about one of the current Barbour fiction releases that you plan to read.I’ll start the recipes off with this one. I found it in recipes Colleen Coble shared with me back in February when I was behaving and eating well. LOL It is unique combination and great for summer when the strawberries and cucumbers are in season.
2)Then post in the comments that you did #1 along with a recipe or a link to a recipe that makes a quick and tasty summer treat.
Cucumber and Strawberry Salad
1 cup sliced strawberries, divided
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Dash of salt
Dash of cayenne (optional)
Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
Stevia, to taste (or you can sweeten a bit with sugar or sweetener of your choice)
1 whole cucumber, sliced
Combine all but the cucumber and a half cup of strawberries in food processor. Puree until smooth. Pour over sliced cucumber and strawberries. Allow to marinate for at least 10 minutes.
