Fresh Start Farms

fresh cucumber & snap pea salad

July brings more variety to fresh veggies in New England. You'll find tomatoes, snap peas, cucumbers, beans, zucchini and squash. Corn should be "knee high by the 4th of July" so soon you'll be eating fresh corn on the cob. This week's recipe is a simple but delicious, fresh cucumber and snap pea salad.
Ingredients you'll need:
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon caraway seed
kosher salt and black pepper
1 cucumber, sliced
3/4 pound sugar snap peas, trimmed and halved

Whisk together the yogurt, vinegar, caraway seed, 1 ½ teaspoons salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper. Fold in the cucumber and snap peas. Refrigerate for up to 8 hours. You may substitute dill, cilantro, or mint for caraway, or simply add onto the caraway.
