A cooling salad for those hot summer daysSubmitted by RUGBY1212
Initially, this recipe may seem like allot of steps but it’s really easy and worth any trouble. I make little 3” sandwich, using a good quality dinner roll or a larger sandwich roll for a meal. I have gotten rave reviews and requests for a return engagement when I have made these for parties. Yippy!Submitted by ANNETTEBELISLE
I absolutely love this salad! You make it the day before you plan to serve it. It makes a LOT so the calories really don't turn out to be too high considering the ingredients! Can be used year-round but we love it in the spring/summer. This recipe uses light ingredients and you cannot tell a difference. If you want to use full-fat it will not hurt, but will change the nutrition stats!Submitted by RACHELMARLENA
Thicken the yogurt by draining the whey from it ( about 5+ hours) through a coffee filter.
Grate cucumber and sprinkle with salt. Let the cucumber rest for 30 min. in a sieve over a sink or bowl to drain moisture from it. Pat dry with paper towels.
Mix the onion, minced garlic, dill, cucumber, salt, pepper & lemon juice into the yogurt.
Great as a dip or as a sandwich spread.
i tweaked a recipe from the "eat clean" book by tasca reno, i changed the flour...and used lighter bake oil replacement for half the fat...these are chewy and light when you want a healthy sweet cookie.
(if you dont have sunsweet lighter bake you can use applesauce)
Pleasing to the eye and the tummy =)
Cool, spicy, tangy and addicting.
Tip: Doing this for a picnic? DO NOT THAW THE CORN! It will thaw by the time you need it and help keep the salad cool!
Hint: If you can't find the canned "diced tomatoe & green chillies" simply substitute w/one tomatoe and another quarter of that jalapeno pepper.
Great to prepare the night before a picnic :)
Best part of this recipe is it's not an exact science. Eyeball it and play w/the vinegars! I prefer more cilantro & jalapeno for a more "Mex" and less "Tex" taste!
