The season of salads.

Isn’t is the season of salads? Pasta salad, fruit salad, green salads. Well, I don’t often post recipes, but I thought this one was worth sharing. My sister shared it with me 2 years ago. So, what’s taken me so long? I do not know! But here she is. I don’t have a name for it, so you can make one up.

1 cucumber
2 roma tomatoes
4 oz. sour cream (I use the light version)
seasoning salt

Chop veggies into bite-sized pieces. Place in bowl and douse in seasoning salt. That’s right douse, because I like things well-seasoned, aka extra salty. Mix in sour cream and viola. So simple, huh? 4 entire ingredients! That's it. And oh-so-good! In fact, so good, that I have eaten this entire salad the past 2 days for lunch. So I have eaten 3 entire vegetables at lunch 2 days this week. Not just 3 servings of veggies, but I have downed an entire cucumber, along with the 2 tomatoes. Sounds a little crazy, maybe. But, just try it and you’ll know why. And don’t judge since I ate it all. I might as well, because the J-man doesn’t touch sour cream. It’s white, creamy and he’s a texture freak. So there’s you something new to try this summer.

So fun! I need to try it! Blake's the same way about sour cream...he will not touch it or anything that might look like it has sour cream in it.

Love it! I remember you made this for us one time we were over. I've made it a few times before. Thanks for the reminder. I could definitely use easy recipes now. :)
