I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Tomato and Cuc Salad for Two

This easy salad for two can be served on it's own for lunch or as a starter with dinner.

Salad greens enough to half fill 2 bowls
2 tbsps edamame beans
1 tomato, cut in chunks
1/2 garden cucumber, sliced in quarters
1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp - 2 tsps red pepper flakes (to taste)
pinch sea salt
1/8 cup rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp light olive oil
feta to crumble on top

So... pretty simple. Once the two bowls have their greens in them, combine the edamame beans, tomato, parsley and cucumber and divide in half. 
Mix the garlic, red pepper flakes (I'm a wimp and only used 1/4 tsp), sea salt, rice wine vinegar and olive oil together. Pour half over half the tomatoes etc. and toss, them dump it on top of the greens. Repeat with the second bowl.

Crumble the feta on top and serve right away!
