God’s Bountiful Garden

gods-garden-cucumber-saladThis past week my garden was bountiful!  It has always been a mystery to me how you can put a seed in the ground, tend to it, water it and about 6 weeks later pick something to eat!  It is one of God’s true miracles!  I love to garden and produce my own veggies.  This week I picked from my garden 3 squash, tons of okra, 7 cucumbers and a pint of tomatoes and blackberries.  It was wonderful to be able to eat something that I grew myself and helped to produce.   My daughter often helps me in the garden and we decided to make a fresh garden salad with our bounty.   I thought you might enjoy the recipe.

Summer Garden Salad

-Slice 1 cucumber, 15 cherry tomatoes and 15 okra into bite sized pieces into a bowl. 

-Mix in ¼ cup rice vinegar, 3 tablespoons of Olive Oil, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of dried dill, 3 tablespoons of fresh shredded Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper to taste. 

Lightly toss into the bowl and enjoy.   

It’s light, healthy, easy to make and the perfect summer salad.   I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we did!
