Summer's Best!

Perhaps there are some duplicates here, or even some that don't belong. But, I decided that since summer is almost over, it might be best to get this out for others to enjoy! You can tell that fresh tomatoes and cucumbers are my faves!

Creamy cucumber filling for sandwiches that is wonderful. The dill and garlic give it pizazz. This can also be used for an appetizer if used on the party rye bread.

A MUST MAKE! This recipe is great to make with tomatoes that are red to green! My Husband told me I have to give these a real good name. He was giving these a names but they would have gone off the page. He won 't eat Parmesan cheese or goat cheese and he had both and just loved it! After I told him what cheese are in it he went back for seconds and thirds. I don 't care what anyone rates this at because Mister Picky gave it his top rating! And that's all I care about! BUT if he likes this much it everyone in the world will! These tomatoes had a salty, cheesy, crisp crust. The tomato was warm and juicy. The goat cheese gave it a nice creamy sharpness. Onions and garlic gave it a subtle sweetness. I did use tomatoes that weren't completely ripe. But go for what you have be it green or red. Hey if any of you have a better name for this recipe give me an e-mail. Bursting Tomatoes came from eating them right after being cooked they just burst in your mouth! This is a copycat recipe of a dish I had when vacationing Southwest.

One of my co-workers used to come running in with a cucumber, couple of carrots, fresh lime and a jar of chili powder, she would slice the veggies and toss with the lime juice and sprinkle the chili powder every few bites or so as a way of having a quick on the run lunch without eating fast food.

This is in response to a request. It is from "The Complete Asian Cookbook" by Charmaine Solomon. It does require that it marinates a while before serving. There is no real cook time involved.

Recipe #43101

When I arrived in Iceland, this was my DH’s 1st food request & I went thru a lot of RZ cucumber salad recipes to be sure it wasn’t a duplicate. Siggi & my sister named this because it was original w/me & because of my twissis internet identity. For best results, don’t make this a dy ahead, but do allow at least 2 hrs for the flavors to blend & the “cream” to develop from the finished ingredient mix. I promise you’ll like this. (Stated time does not include refrigeration time)

This is fresh and crunchy. Almost all the ingredients come straight from the garden. A great use for those surplus cucumbers and tomatoes-you can only make so many pickles, right?! Cook time is chill time.
