There is nothing more refreshing to me in the summer than a big bowl of sliced cucumbers straight from the garden. My neighbors recently blessed me again with a gigantic bag of cukes (that’s what I call ‘em). I went to a little cookout at my friend’s house recently and this is what I brought: Creamy Cucumber Salad.
And of course there were some fresh herbs from my little herb garden involved.
When my basil starts to bloom I know I need to do something with it or it won’t keep growing…the flowers from herbs are so beautiful! Sometimes I’ll just put the herb flowers in a vase to enjoy them.
My Mom saw the photo and asked if the dressing was a ranch dressing…it is actually a simple sour cream mixture with vinegar, salt, pepper and fresh herbs. Add some love to your cukes and try this recipe…it was a welcomed change to plain ole’ cucumbers and vinegar!
