MMMMMMM...this is WONDERFUL!!! It's light refreshing and can be adapted in an infinite number of ways. I like it as is however (which is very unusual) and so if I could I would give this simple easy why-didn't-I-think-of-this-before recipe 10 stars!!! Read More

To avoid a sloppy and unpleasant consistency I always deseed both the tomatoes and cucumber. I also use English cucumbers and keep the skin on for a bit of extra crunch. Thanks! Read More

I really loved this as my lunch today. I did add garlic and onion powders and a good splash of lemon juice. Lots of black cracked pepper made it just perfect. A very refreshing salad for a hot and humid day. Thanks Randi!! Read More

This is tough to rate because I just realized I'm not even sure if I've ever had/like cottage cheese. I made this as a simple dinner side and while we both ate it I'm not sure it's something I'll make again. That being said it IS a nice change of pace light (I used fat free cottage cheese) side. It's a pretty naked palate open to adding whatever herbs/spices/seasoning you prefer to up the flavor a notch. THANKS for a nice change of pace side Randi! Read More
