Hi guys! How have you been? I took the day off from work yesterday to unpack. The kitchen and bathroom are completely done, the bedroom is kind of unpacked and the living room..well…not so much. Working on it though! I’m trying to unpack more quickly this time around than I usually do. We’ll see how that goes…
Do you ever have days where you plan on being really productive and then your plain fails? That sort of happened yesterday. I was productive up until around 4 pm when I decided to turn on the TV (bad idea) and saw that the Kardashian’s were on and that E! happened to be airing the latest episodes (all of which I hadn’t seen). And so my life was consumed for a few hours. Ehhhhhh, isn’t that what a day off to unpack is for? To kind of unpack and then kind of not? I think so.
So this salad—let’s talk about this salad for one sec. I was at the grocery store yesterday and, while there, picked up peaches and cucumbers. Random, I know. I got home and was just planning on eating a peach by itself, but then decided to combine it with a few other things. What kind of things, you ask? Well, cucumber, apple, orange, and kefir to be exact. One time long long ago, Davida created chia pudding with kefir in it, so I decided to give it a try. I knew it was kinda sorta like yogurt, but since my taste buds are still picky when it comes to yogurt, I was a little weary on whether or not I’d like it.
Spoiler alert: I loved it. If I didn’t love it then I wouldn’t have thought of covering this entire cucumber salad with it. I opted for the vanilla flavor to add some sweetness to this dish. Oh, and in case you were wondering, kefir is fermented milk with live and active kefir cultures. It contains plenty of calcium, and can be eaten in smoothies, by itself or in this salad 🙂 Or all three if you’re feeling really crazy. It adds a creaminess to this salad and a little bit goes a long way. Basically, I’m going to start adding it to everything now, so watch out!
- 2 cucumbers, chopped
- 1 cup orange, peeled and diced
- 1 cup apple, diced
- 1 cup peach, diced
- ½ cup kefir (I used vanilla)
- Optional: 1 tbsp citrus spice
- Chop all ingredients into bite-size pieces and place in a large bowl.
- Add kefir and spice and stir until the fruit and cucumber are mixed together.
Q: What’s a show that could keep you from being unproductive on your day off?
