Recipe: Easy Chop Salad

Easy Chop Vegge Salad

I made this up one day when I didn’t have any lettuce. It was delicious with the sweetness of the Cucumber complimenting the saltiness of the Celery and punctuated by the Carrot flavor. If you happen to have Lettuce on hand, it would add more body and some greens.

Options: This salad is really a nice canvass allowing you to add any herb you like, some cheese, hard boiled eggs, meat, etc. When Basil is back in season, I will be replacing my dried herbs with it for this salad.

Easy Chop Salad

Ingredients:

– 2 Carrots

– 2 Stalks Celery

– 1 Medium sized Cucumber

– 1 Table Spoon Olive Oil

– Pinch (1/4 Teaspoon) Dried Thyme or Rosemary

– Salt to taste

Peel Carrots and Cucumber, slice of the ends. Chop all ingredients and place in a bowl. Drizzle with some Olive Oil, add salt to taste and a pinch of dried Thyme or Rosemary for added flavor. This salad served two adults – filling a dinner plate.

Let me know what you discover when adding other ingredients – Enjoy!
