The Easiest Summer Appetizer

Are you ready for the most refreshingly simple appetizer/snack ever? It's two ingredients - cucumbers and Italian dressing! Just peel cucumbers and cut them into thin slices and put them in a shallow dish.

Then, pour your favorite Italian dressing (the Olive Garden signature dressing is lovely, or if you prefer homemade here's a recipe you can try) over the cukes until they are immersed and put them covered in the refrigerator to marinate for awhile. They'll keep for up to a week, and you can keep adding fresh cucumbers to the dressing until it's all soaked up. 

These crisp, tangy little cucumbers are delightful as a snack, an appetizer by itself or as part of a larger veggie arrangement, or you could try them layered in a sandwich for crunch and flavor. 

Let us know how it turns out.

We'll be at market this week with: tomatoes, potatoes, onions, garlic, cucumbers, beets, carrots, summer squash, green beans, fresh dill, and handmade wood-fired bread.

PLUS: CSA members will get a jar of roasted tomatillo salsa! 

See you guys soon!
