I’m starting to harvest from my small garden – How about you? We’ve got cucumbers, tomatoes, squash and raspberries all coming on. Here’s a recipe for Cucumber Salsa that combines the bounty from my garden with nutritious Thrive food, saving me time and money. This can be eaten as a snack or appetizer with chips, crackers, etc. or used as a side salad.

Combine dressing ingredients in a small bowl and mix well. Pour over vegetable mixture and gently combine, making sure all veggies are coated. Let it sit for 10 minutes or more for FD vegetables to reconstitute and flavors to blend.
