Sweet Cucumber & Feta Salad

Cucumber & Feta Salad
Don't you just love summertime? The weather is warm (although maybe too hot in some places) and it's good to sit outside in the late afternoon, download your week with your favorite listener and enjoy something light to eat. There's nothing better than a cool, crisp salad to nourish the body and revitalize the soul.

I love cucumbers, their crunch and delicate flavor take on the delicious essence of a tangy dressing. Balsamic. lemon. Lime.

Some people don't like cucumbers. Too bitter. Some even have issues with the green, tubular powerhouse of nutrients.

Summer Squash & Quinoa Salad

Summer Squash & Quinoa Salad
There I was faced with the dilemma of preparing something to take to our monthly neighborhood potluck and wine tasting. Of course, I don't drink any alcohol, but I always want to bring something healthy to add to the food table.

Zucchini and saucer squash and sweet cucumber (l - r)
I decided to make something up using the beautiful squash and cucumber I'm harvesting from the garden. If it turned out good, I'd share it with you. After putting the salad together, I took pictures and figured there would be some left over from the get together and I could take one more picture that showed more of the squash, cucumber and quinoa. Well... everyone loved it and ate it all up. So what you see is what you get for photos.
