Summer Lovin'...

In my opinion one of the best things about the summer are the vegetables it produces and I must say cucumbers are one of my favorites.  They are cool and light and refreshing.  Oh my, that makes me think about a fabulous cocktail I had while in Vegas but I digress.  I'll save that story for another day.

Anyway, if you love cucumbers like I love cucumbers you must try this fabulous snack I found on Pinterest.  It is super quick, super easy and super good.  In fact; now that I think about it, it is just as yummy as that aforementioned cocktail minus the gin!

Simply slice a baby cucumber (I actually used an English cucumber because I prefer the seedless variety) in to thin slices.

Add lemon juice (I used the juice of half a lemon for one English cucumber) to taste.

Drizzle with olive oil to lightly coat.

Sprinkle with salt, pepper and chile powder to taste.

Toss well and enjoy!

Hey Kim.... How are you? I've been missing keeping up with all my blog friends too. This looks yummy. Never thought about putting lemon juice. Take care, Melissa
