Creamy Cucumber Dill Salad

It’s time for summer salad season to kick in. Today’s star was a very lovely cucumber, some fennel, and chives, along with a creamy dill dressing. It was light and delicious.

Ingredients
1 cucumber, sliced
1 red bell pepper, in strips
1-2 green onions, chopped
1 fennel, cored and sliced thin
1 large carrot, shredded
1 TBSP chopped chives
1 /2 cup vegan mayo
1 /4 cup apple vinegar
1 tsp dried or fresh dill
salt and pepper to taste

Process
Place the veggies in a bowl. Combine the mayo, vinegar, dill, salt, and pepper (add a little garlic if you like). Pour the dressing over and gently toss. Allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Juice of the Day – 2/12/11

Today’s juice was not a big success for me.  I drank it for the vitamins, but I didn’t like it.

1 handful kale
2 stalks celery
1/2 cucumber
2 carrots
1/2 beet

I think it needed less cucumber or more beet, or something to perk it up a little.  Back to the drawing board on this one.  Maybe I should read any one of the 50-60 recipes that I have 🙂
