Cucumber Citrus Salad


“Cool as a cucumber….”
Cucumbers are so refreshing! Cucumber salads are fun to make and can be flavored to add to your entree or to eat alone.  I had lots of oranges and wanted to make a sweet cucumber salad.  I added some thinly sliced almonds and celery to give it some crunch.  I hope you will enjoy this salad!

Citrus Chicken Fajita Marinade


I love the bright and fresh citrus that we get in the wintertime from Bountiful Baskets but sometimes my counter fills up faster than I get them used. I was inspired to use the citrus to make a flavorful marinade for the fajitas on my meal plan for this week.  The resulting chicken is moist and flavorful and it comes together super easily.

Citrus Rosemary Salt Blend

I love having special spice blends in my pantry so it is easy to whip up meals. During the winter, when citrus is plentiful, I zest the fruits and let it dry on a napkin then store it in a jar. I used that zest in this blend along with Rosemary that I received in an Italian Veggie Add-on. This blend is wonderful fragrant and tasty on poultry or roasted veggies.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 C Sea Salt
  • 1 T Orange Zest
  • 1 T Rosemary

Instructions

  1. Put all of the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until well blended. You don't want to overpulvarize the salt.
