The Ways Strong Friendships Benefit Your Health 

Staying healthy isn’t just about diet and exercise. It also comes from strong and lasting friendships. Studies show that time spent with friends helps us to stay healthy and potentially live longer. And while you can "connect" on Facebook and Instagram, the real benefits come from live, regular, face-to-face interactions, even if they're via Facetime or Skype. Consider scheduling routine get-togethers with friends to share successes, failures, and the unique life-wisdom that each of you has to offer—and see how good you feel!

Cuke and Onion Salad   

We've been enjoying this quick and easy summer salad.

What makes it deliciously astringent is the variety of vinegars used in the marinade. 

Cuke and Onion Salad 

1 cucumber (I prefer organic English, but any organic cucumber* will do) 
1 red onion

Peel the cucumber in alternating strips to make a decorative pattern. 
Slice the cucumber and the onion into thin slices.
Place in a stainless steel or glass bowl. Set aside. 

Separately, whisk together the following ingredients:

2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar (I use Bragg's)
2 Tbsp rice vinegar
2 Tbsp white vinegar
1 clove of smashed garlic
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Pour the dressing over the sliced cucumbers and onions. 
Cover and refrigerate for 1-3 hours. 

Before serving, remove the garlic clove.
Additionally, you can crumble feta cheese on top or garnish with dill, cherry tomatoes or olives. 

Enjoy ~ 

*Cucumbers are on the Dirty Dozen list for 2016 so buy organic if you can
