I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.

It doesn’t seem possible that August is half over and soon our fresh produce will be coming to an end! All the more reason to enjoy it as often as we can. In spite of our limited activity this summer is time has flown by, we will soon be into fall. Today I am sharing a recipe that I found on face book using cucumbers, they are so much better fresh from the garden.
Cucumber Salad with Herb & Garlic Dressing
3 cucumbers, standard or 2 long English cucumbers
1/2 red onion, finely diced
Herb and Garlic Dressing
1 1/2 tablespoon red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard
3/4 tsp. mixed dried herbs, 1/4 tsp. each of basil or parsley, oregano, and thyme
1/2 tsp. white sugar
1/2 tsp. each salt and black pepper
Shake dressing in a jar. Trim ends of the cucumber then slice about 1/8 inch thick, place in bowl with red onion. Pour dressing over, toss gently and serve immediately.
Stay safe and have a good week!
