In the past post I mentioned a very nutritious Quinoa salad flavored with this Magic Green Sauce.
I am providing a link to its origin, but will also post the ingredients and directions in this post, in case the link stops working at some point, and because I made some minor adjustments to suit my taste.
This Quinoa Salad with Magic Green Sauce became my favorite from the first time my daughter-in-law served it for lunch during one of our visits.
It could easily be a light lunch meal in itself, or as an accompaniment to a main course.
Today I will share a recipe for the salad, since you already have the recipe for the sauce/dressing from my previous post.
I have just picked some fresh cucumbers from my garden…..they are so fresh, and so much tastier than the ones from the store (no wax on these ones….). Garden fresh cucumbers actually do have a very nice taste, and can be eaten with the peel on, but I prefer them peeled.
Cucumbers may be used in a variety of ways: in tossed salads, as cucumber tea sandwiches, sliced and served plain or with a dip, used in numerous appetizers, etc. I love my cucumbers in a cucumber salad, dressed with sour cream or vinaigrette style.
Homemade Tzatziki Dip is very refreshing any time of the year, but even more so during hot summer days. It may be served as a dip with veggies, chunks of Pita Bread, gyros, or souvlaki, or as a salad dressing.
