Garden Harvest Recipes, part 2

Have you tried last week's roasted radishes yet?  Nancy of NancyEllenStudios and DesignsStainedGlass has passed along another yummy recipe to use that produce fresh from your garden!

I love this time of year when I can go into my gardens, pick some fresh herbs and fresh veggies and make a light side salad like this one:


 3 English cucumbers
2 stalks celery
1/2 medium white onion
1/4 c. mayonnaise
1/2 c. fresh cilantro
2/1/2 tsp. champagne vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

With a vegetable peeler, shave cucumbers into wide ribbons, stopping when you reach seed; reserve 1 center. Thinly slice celery and onion: place in a large bowl along with cucumber ribbons. In a blender, puree reserved cucumber center, mayonnaise, cilantro, and champagne vinegar, season with salt and pepper and add to bowl. Toss to combine and refrigerate for an hour or so.

From Robin's kitchen (and Nancy's) to yours, enjoy!
