Hey Friends! How in this crazy ol’ world are ya? We are doing good…so of course…that is good. 🙂
So…I know this is probably way behind. Sometimes I go about my merry little way, oblivious to what the rest of you guys are doing. I think that it stems from being an only child for so long…(My brother was born right before my eighteenth b-day.)…and being able to entertain myself. I kind of get into “hermit mode” and, well I don’t know….enough excuses. (Enough analyzing my childhood.) I am just now asking the question “How bout them chili powder cukes?”
Is this all Greek to you? They are basically just cucumbers drizzled with olive oil, a splash of lemon juice, salt, pepper and a sprinkle of chili powder on top. I had heard of them…but never tried them. So I decided to remedy that.
I tried them.
My question to you all is this: What do you think about them?
I seriously want some input. Is this a delicacy that I have missed? Is there anything else to add that would jazz them up a tad? What is the big deal-e-o? I want honest opinions here. 🙂
Even if you haven’t tried cukes this way…what is your favorite way to eat them? We usually have them growing like crazy in the summer. I’m always up for new ideas.
Have a wonderful day, Dirt Roadikins! Being healthy can be fun…right? Okay then…go be healthy. 😉
I like cucumbers any ol’ way, so I’d imagine I’d like these too. Never heard of ’em, but I like the concept & the ingredients. Kind of an amped up version, huh?! I grew up picking them from the garden & eating them sliced up with a sprinkle of salt & pepper. They were served alongside every meal, as well as garden green onions & tomatoes, all summer long.
Mmmm….Angela. You are making me long for our garden. 🙂 That is the way we roll here in the summer. I LOVE…lovity…love picking things for supper…out of the back yard. They were pretty good. The chili powder was okay…I might like cayenne better. 🙂 Of course…I have had a cold….so that could have been a bad week to decide. k.
These are one of my favorite snacks!!!! I love cucumbers with vinegar and lemon pepper! Reminds me of summer!
KariAnne…How fun! 🙂 It really does taste like summer doesn’t it? God is good…to give us…cucumbers. 😉 k.

Pitcher of water with sliced cucumbers, peeled sliced grapefruit and a sprig of mint. Refreshing. Always in the fridge, helps me drink all my daily water quota.
B. I need to do this! I struggle with H20…in a major way. I like it mixed w/my tea. 😉 I gotta try it! k.
