So… dieting. That means that for the next three months, I will try to post only reasonably healthy recipes. My hope is that coming up with new recipes will make this fun.
And the truth is, this salad really was kind of fun to create. It was very easy, but it looks beautiful, doesn’t it? We served it with a steamed chicken breast, and I didn’t feel deprived. Much.
Recipe: Tomato-Cucumber Salad1 large cucumber, sliced thin
2 small, sweet tomatoes, sliced thin
½ small onion, sliced thin
1 T mild vinegar
1 t olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
¼ C Parmesan cheese, shredded
