Since marrying Joe I have been introduced to the wonderful world of fruit and vegetables and much prefer this world to the meat and potatoes world. Since my family can't comprehend the food pyramid and how much fiber they should be eating daily (love you Mom!), I have taken it upon myself to take fiber-licious side dishes to every meal I eat with them.
This past Saturday was my parent's 30th anniversary. Naturally, I forgot about this and just carried on my day as normal. I showed up for dinner with a new recipe that I got from http://classiccookery.blogspot.com/. It's a cucumber salad adapted from a cookbook called Slenderella. Cute name! Anyhoo, my mom went CRAZY for this salad and said it was the best anniversary gift I've given her in years! So thank you Classic Cookery for saving me and my forgetful memory. Love you Mom and Dad!
- 4 cucumbers, sliced thin (I peeled mine too)
- 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 tbsp sour cream
- 1/4 cup yogurt
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp chopped dill weed
Soak cucumber in ice water for 30 minutes, and drain well. Mix together the vinegar, sour cream, yogurt, salt, and dill. Mix with the cucumbers and chill.
