CUCUMBERS 3 WAYS:

1) Cucumbers in Dill Cream

1 cup sour cream

1/4 cup chopped fresh dill

2 tbsp. cider vinegar

1 tsp salt

1 medium sliced onions, or several thinly sliced scallions

2 thinly sliced cucumbers

Mix sour cream with all but 1 tablespoon dill, vinegar and salt in small bowl.  Mix up rest of ingredients. Sprinkle reserved dill over top and serve cold. Can be served immediately or refrigerated for several hours.

 

2) Farmer's Favorite Cucumbers:

2 regular cukes, sliced in rounds

Marinade Options:

 1) 1/4 c. Cider Vinegar

1/3 c. cold water

½ tsp. salt

 

2) 1/3 c. seasoned rice vinegar

1/3 c. cold water

½ tsp. salt

Place sliced cukes in bowl. Pour marinade over and stir. Adjust water, vinegar, or seasonings to taste. Serve immediately and/or place in fridge and enjoy after several hours, the next day, etc. etc.

(We usually just keep a batch of marinade going for about a week. We eat all the cucumbers out of it, and then slice another into the marinade, and put it back in the fridge. We sometimes add slices of sweet onion, red pepper, tomato slices, or whole cherry tomatoes. This is very refreshing in the summer and can be enjoyed with any meal.)

3) Asian Cucumber Salad

2 medium Cucumbers sliced 1/4 thin
1 tablespoon Honey
3 tablespoon Rice Vinegar
2 tablespoon Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon Sesame Oil
1 tablespoon of Toasted Sesame Seeds
Chili Flakes

1. In a bowl whisk together honey, rice vinegar, soy sauce and sesame oil. Taste for seasoning and adjust as wanted.
2. In a separate bowl toss together the dressing and cucumbers. Fold the toasted sesames and allow salad to sit for 30 minutes or overnight
3. Top with chili flakes (optional) and serve!

 

Summer Kale Salad with Blueberries, Cherries, and Goat Cheese

Ingredients:
  • 1 bunch kale, torn (discard tough inner stem)
  • 1 cup fresh cherries, stemmed, pitted, and halved
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 2 green onions, both white and green parts, sliced on the bias
  • 3 ounces (about 1/3 cup) crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Place the kale in a large bowl. , cherries, blueberries, green onion, goat cheese, and almonds in a large bowl.
  2. Place the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, dijon, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste in a mason jar.  Cover tightly and shake vigorously until emulsified.
  3. Pour the 1/2 of the dressing over the kale and toss to combine. For a more tender kale, you can massage the dressing into the leaves, until they become softened and bright green. I really like to make it this way, but this step can be skipped. 
  4. Add the remaining ingredients and toss to combine.  Serve and enjoy!
