Pea and Cucumber Salad, picnic or party food! Peas, cucumbers, tomatoes, a few onions and an amazing vinaigrette. So pretty, too.
Pea and Cucumber Salad, Light and Refreshing!
Hi. It’s Lois in the kitchen, telling you about a Pea and Cucumber Salad recipe. This is one of my favorite spring (or anytime) salads. It is very light and flavorful and originally came from the book Reversing Diabetes: Reduce or Even Eliminate Your Dependence on Insulin or Oral Drugs by Julian Whitaker, M.D. This book is not just a cookbook; it contains lots of terrific ideas about how to modify traditional recipes to reduce the fat and help you maintain a healthy blood sugar level. As a Type 2 diabetic, I have found it to be very helpful, and the recipes are really good.
I made some of this salad and served it to my great niece, Alina, who was 8, and her brother (age 2). They loved it and ate every bit of it. And Alina asked for more the next day! The salad dressing is so light and flavorful. It calls for one of my favorite spices, tarragon. Try it and let me know what you think by commenting on the recipe.
This Pea and Cucumber Salad is beautiful, with its red and green vegetables. It makes a good dish to take to a potluck or serve for an everyday meal. No mayonnaise and no fat in it! I need to make this more often. The tarragon and vinegar vinaigrette is really tasty.
It’s also a good salad to serve in cups at a party. It is simple and contains no common allergens (wheat/gluten, eggs, nuts, soy, or dairy).
This salad is good with just about anything, but try it with Easy Oven Roasted Spatchcocked Chicken and a baked sweet potato. Sounds like supper!
As one of my friends once said, “You can never have too many [serving] bowls!” How about this beauty?
