Last night I had the most vivid dream. I want to share it with you because I believe it was one of those visionary dreams that will have lasting effect upon me from this point forward. I am such a visual person and although I'd love to try to paint a picture of what I dreamed of in words, I think I'll have to create a drawing of what I saw in my dream before I can share it with you here on the blog. It's worth the wait and I'll enjoy your input once I post it. Stay tuned.
Tonight I made an encore performance of a salad that I made during our time away this past holiday weekend. It's a modified version of a recent recipe in VegNews Magazine, but as usual, I've added my own twist. It's really delicious and I hope you'll enjoy!
Asian Cucumber Salad
3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 Tbsp Nama Shoyu or wheat free Tamari
1 Tbsp maple syrup or agave nectar
1 clove fresh minced garlic
1 Tbsp fresh mint, roughly chopped
1 tsp+ seeded, minced, jalapeño pepper
2 large cucumbers, sliced lengthwise on a mandoline or with a sharp knife to about 1/8 inch thickness
1/4 cup raw peanuts, chopped
In a small bowl, mix lime juice, nama shoyu, maple syrup, garlic, mint, and jalapeño. Add cucumber ribbons and peanuts, tossing gently. Serve within one hour.
