Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Recipe Created

I had avocados that were ripe and had to be used. I had cucumber that is perfect his time of year so I created this recipe.

Cucumber-Avocado Salad

1 cucumber peeled and thinly sliced
1 large garlic clove crushed
5-6 cherry tomatoes sliced in half
1/4 cup lime juice
2 avocados diced
sea salt and pepper to taste
fresh basil chopped (to taste)

Combine all the ingredients tossing them in the lime juice. To make ahead combine everything except the avocados and lime juice. Before serving peel and dice the avocado and toss with other ingredients in the lime juice.
