Cucumber & Tomato Salad

Friday, April 1st, 2016

Hallelujah for wanting to eat fresh, cool salad again…those winter months were rough!

Here is a new salad we put together when we were out of regular leafy greens…we found you can still have amazing side salad to go with any meal and it’s always nice to mix things up.boxwood clippings | cucumber and tomato salad
INGREDIENTS

grilled chicken
tomatoes
cucumbers
red onion
avocado
cilantro
olive oil
1/2 lime
s+p

DIRECTIONS

Amounts of ingredients is all about preference. But we’ve discovered this kind of salad tastes better the smaller you dice everything up…more flavor punch to bite ration :) Dice vegetables and toss with olive oil, lime juice and salt and pepper.

Enjoy with any grilled chicken/fish…really you could pair this with anything!

THIS recipe is our favorite. We crushed up 4 candy canes and folded them in gently before baking and spoon small rounds on our parchment rather than one large pavlova.

After cooling, we drizzled with chocolate for extra decadence.

Keep in an airtight container to keep nice and fresh for up to two weeks.

What’s your favorite thing to make this Christmas? If you feel you want to mix it up this year, we promise these will not disappoint!

December is always so insanely busy!
With shopping, parties, and everything else we’re trying to get ahead and are giving our neighbors’ gifts the week of Thanksgiving in lieu of Christmas this year.

Cookies wrapped in parchment, boxed and tied in string, accompanied with a gratitude note will do the job nicely.

We think this would work great for c0-workers and friends too.
A nice little gesture of thanks and getting ahead on Christmas….holler!

PS. Boxes are from HERE!

Peel and slice butternut squash.

Toss in olive oil, lay on cookie sheet and season with Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and a little dried rosemary.

Bake at 425 Fahrenheit, tossing once until golden brown, about 35 mins.

Mommy and toddler approved!
