We have invited Carol Borchardt from A Cookbook Obsession to share another of her delicious and healthful recipes. This recipe for Cucumber, Tomato and Red Onion Salad is a great choice for anyone seeking new Mediterranean Diet recipes. This salad is bright and flavorful, perfect to grace the table with any Mediterranean meal. We also recommend this salad for a satisfying lunch. This recipe is very similar to a crunchy traditional Greek Salad. We enjoy the addition of plentiful fresh mint that adds extra sparkle to this recipe. You’ll also be pleased to know that this is a truly health-packed dish, filled with superfoods and other healthy ingredients.
Carol Borchardt is a life-long passionate cook whose background in the culinary arts began with instruction from her mother, a prize-winning cook who developed original recipes while feeding their large family. The farm-to-table, free-range and wild-caught concepts so important today aren't new to Carol--that was her family's way of life on their picturesque central Wisconsin farm. Carol loves to create original recipes just as her mother did. Five of her original recipes are in The Fresh Market and Friends 25th Anniversary Cookbook. Her column “Dinner For Two,” which includes a recipe and her photography appears on a biweekly basis in The Commercial Appeal’s Food Section . She shares many more creative recipes at her blog, A Cookbook Obsession.
