Is it spring yet! I hope it is where you are. New York is still quite cold, although beautifully sunny, which inspired me to share my recipe for Cucumber Salmon Salad with you.
Cucumber Salmon Salad is delicious. It’s a great brunch dish and ideal for those who do not eat eggs or meat. Serve with a pitcher of sangria and a smile.
Try this dill & blackberry vodka cocktail with fresh herbs, cucumber and lime.
I’ve always longed to be a mixologist. In my 20s I used to hang out in bars, my brother insisted I go to, and marvel at the head bartenders and mixologists as they did their thing. In the back of my mind I thought, hey I can do that! So here’s my first published creation. I call her “Dillicious”. She’s everything I think a cocktail should be – strong, refreshing, interesting and made with fresh ingredients. Although laced with vodka dill and blackberries are packed full with anti-oxidants and cucumber is 90% water, so the cleansing abilities are limitless – lol. No seriously, cocktails should be well balanced, just as we require our meals to be. Reject your high sugar, juiced filled cocktails and embrace a more refined aperitif!
