Fresh Friday

So my friend has come up with the concept called Fresh Fridays. So every Friday you have to come up with a fresh and healthy recipe , really cool idea! I love to cook and I especially love to cook with healthy fresh ingredients including fresh herbs. So I have picked this recipe for my first fresh friday...

******Cucumber Fennel Salad ******

1 large Cucumber sliced
1/2 fennel bulb sliced
1/4 cup greek yogurt such as {Fage}
Rice wine vinegar
pinch celery seed
fresh dill
pinch salt and pepper
feta crumbles
combine and wisk together the greek yogurt and rice wine vinegar, add all remaining ingredients toss and coat with cucumbers. What a great summer side dish so FRESH & HEALTHY.
Enjoy ~

I hope you are inspired by healthy cooking there are so many endless possibilities you just have to be willing to be open to new fresh ideas! So next time you are at your local supermarket or farmers market pick up that eggplant or fennel bulb and get creative. I am already thinking of my next recipe.
So stay tuned til next Fresh Friday....

Bon Appetit !
