Love tricolor pasta with cukecumbers, fresh red bell pepper diced, celery, black olives, cherry tomatoes and Ken's Zesty Italian salad dressing. I eyeball how much dressing, probably 1/2 a small bottle of dressing.

No matter what sort of dressing I use, I make sure to spread peeled. halved, seeded, and thinly-sliced cucumbers in a single layer on paper towels.  I refrigerate the slices for 20 minutes.  At the same time, I stir some red onions slices and vinegar in a bowl and marinate them for 20 minutes.

@Chi-town girl  Here's the Peel and eat shrimp recipe.  And if you don't eat all of the shrimp they're really good cold 😊

There's a German restaurant we go to on occasion and I always get the Cucumber Salad, Jaegerschnitzel, and pan-fried potatoes.  Just picked my first cucmber of the season today too.  This recipe is a very close dupe.

 

Cucumber Salad

1/4 Cup Sour Cream or Greek Yogurt

2 Tbs Mayonnaise

2 Tbs Dill

1 1/2 tsp Vinegar

1 1/2 tsp Lemon Juice

1/4 tsp Sugar

Salt to taste

Hi, @Chi-town girl !

 

We live in Henderson, NV outside of Vegas and have a favorite salad we've adapted from Bella Vita Restaurant in Green Valley Ranch.  It's an Avocado Caprese Salad over dressed greens.  No specific recipe since I just go by how I viewed the plate but basically it's the following:

 

Take mixed greens (I like Arugula and Spring Mix) and dress with a small amount of olive oil, salt and pepper.  Divide among chilled plates.

 

Slice a large tomato, one or more, into 1/2 inch slices and top dressed greens.

 

Place a slice of burrata/fresh mozzarella on each tomato slice.  (Belgioso has a great presliced fresh mozzarella in our deli section; one ounce slices).

 

Thinly slice a fresh avocado and top each mozzarella round with 2-3 slices of avocado.

 

Drizzle each salad with balsamic glaze (Kroger's Private Selection is a really good one).

 

This salad is light and refreshing.  Can also be filling depending on how many of the tomato, mozzarella and avocado stacks you have per serving.
