I am always delighted with myself when I take a bite of some new recipe I create on the fly and find it is delicious! It never ceases to surprise me, as funny as that sounds. I guess I make as many “mistakes” as I do “successes” when it comes to creating new recipes.
This salad is perfect for a hot Summer day. The coolness of the Cucumber balances the slight bitterness of the Celery, and the Parsley and Thyme add just enough flavor to provide a light, satisfying taste.
Cool Cucumber Salad
– 2 Stalks Celery
– 4-6 Leaves Romaine Lettuce
– Half a large Cucumber
– A handful of fresh Parsley (about a half cup)
– 1/2 Teaspoon Dried Thyme
– 2 Teaspoons Olive Oil
– Salt to taste
Wash and chop, dice or slice the Celery, Lettuce, Cucumber and Parsley and place into a bowl. Drizzle with Olive Oil, sprinkle on the Thyme and Salt to taste. Enjoy!
I think this recipe took me about 5-10 minutes from prep to eating it off my plate. It makes 2 large servings or 4 small dinner salads.
