Cucumber Tomato Salad

Bill and I are in Las Vegas enjoying some shows and of course amazing food! The other night we were at the Wynn, Cipriani restaurant, I had the most amazing salad and I immediately thought, "I need to create this at home"! I nailed it! 

Things to see if you go to Las Vegas- the Sphere. If you can, go to a concert, if not a concert go to the "Note from earth". This new attraction, opened on September 29, 2023 and is amazing....mind blowing really!

Cucumber Tomato Salad


Serves 4

4 Cups cucumbers chopped into large chunks

2 cups Cherry Tomatoes sliced in half

2 Avocado's cut into chunks

1 cup of corn kernels, fresh is best but, frozen is okay

3/4 - 1 cup fresh basil cut into ribbons

Arrange into a bowl and toss lightly with the dressing.


3/4 cup light olive oil

1/4 cup white vinegar

1 1/2 tsp mustard powder

Emulsify these three ingredients and lightly dress the salad.

Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookie

This is one of my favorite cookies! So quick and easy! This is best with real butter, don't cheat this recipe with a lesser type! 

Garden tomato sauce! Figure friendly!

I have an abundance of tomatoes this year....well, really, I have an abundance of everything! I have the Wee Bear running to the food bank once a week with a large shopping bag full of vegetables from my garden. I even put a basket on the board walk of the river in front of our Idaho home full of free veggies. So, I decided to make my own tomato sauce, Catsup and from this recipe for Tomato sauce, I made my own Enchilada Sauce
Fresh home made is full of fresh flavor!
