Cucumber Dill Salad

Cucumber Dill SaladThis is a POTLUCK FAV!!!  This is requested every time I go to a Potluck. The dill gives it the most amazing taste and the dressing is so tasty and pure that your taste buds will be dancing for JOY!

Before we dive deeper into making this…

We all want to be healthy and feel more amazing, right? 

The truth is, it can be confusing to know where to begin.   When we feel overwhelmed, it’s easy to give up even before we’ve started.  I know how it goes because I’ve been there before too!

The top 3 goals I hear most often from my clients are:

  • feeling better
  • losing weight
  • having more energy

If you felt better, had more energy and reached your ideal weight, you would probably feel like a new version of yourself, right?

Okay….now back to the salad…

I’ve also heard from many of my friends & clients that potlucks are changing. More people are going back to basics and making food instead of buying packaged choices. Also, they have been raving about the variety of salads and healthier choices, so I thank you for being a part of that.

Now, back to this tasty salad that is super simple to whip up.

 

INGREDIENTS:

  1. Slice and peel (optional) 2 Cucumber into thin slices and sprinkle with salt.
  2. Let sit for 15 minutes and then rinse off the salt and put in the refrigerator to cool for 30 minutes.
  3. In the meantime make the dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons chickpea miso
  • 3 tablespoon wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup
  • ¼ cup white onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Handful of dill

 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Mix all the dressing ingredients in your food processor -except for the Dill
  2. Drain the cucumbers of the excess water
  3. Add dressing and chopped dill

When taking to a Potluck I add the dressing close to serving time so that it doesn’t get watery.

 

 

What is Chick Pea Miso?

It is a fermented product that helps to build your inner ecosystem. When your inner ecosystem is healthy, you can digest and assimilate nutrients and boost your immunity.

Chick Pea Miso is made with the sumptuous chick pea instead of soybeans. No gluten or soy ingredients.

 

MISO BENEFITS

Many studies have been done on miso, some on humans and some on animals. These studies are showing the following benefits of miso1:

  • Reduces risks of cancer including breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer and colon cancer.
  • Protection from radiation
  • Immune strengthening
  • Antiviral — miso is very alkalizing and strengthening to the immune system helping to combat a viral infection.
  • Prevents aging – high in antioxidants, miso protects from free radicals that cause signs of aging.
  • Helps maintain nutritional balance – full of nutrients, beneficial bacteria and enzymes, miso provides: protein, vitamin B12, vitamin B2, vitamin E, vitamin K, tryptophan, choline, dietary fiber, linoleic acid and lecithin.
  • Helps preserve beautiful skin – miso contains linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid that helps your skin stay soft and free of pigments.
