This is a great fresh, crispy, salad – with no lettuce! This tangy salad will pair well with BBQ food…

Makes 8 servings:

2 Cucumbers
1/2 Yellow Bell Pepper
1/2 Green Bell Pepper
1/2 Red Bell Pepper
1 bundle of Green Onions
1/2 tbsp salt
1/2 tbsp pepper
1 tbsp white/cider vinegar

Quarter the cucumbers in to fair thick chucks. Dice all the peppers and onion. Mix all ingredients into a bowl.

TIP: For added sweetness add 1.5 tbsp of heavy whipping cream (in liquid form).

I had the urge to make deviled eggs, but it spawned into something greater!

Makes 6 cheesy stuffed tomatoes

3 tomatoes
4 eggs
2 slices Havarti cheese
1/4 cup diced green onion
1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
1/4 cup diced jalapenos
1 tbsp chopped garlic
1 tbsp chopped black olives
1 tbsp green salsa
1 tbsp vodka tomato cream sauce

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Hard boil the eggs and harvest the solid egg yolk. Combine all ingredients into a bowl and mix with a fork until homogeneous stuffing mix. Cut tomatoes in half and spoon out insides scraping the interior walls of the tomatoes. Spoon the stuffing mix into the tomato halves. Cover each stuffed tomato with a 1/4 slice of Havarti cheese. Put in oven for 20 minutes.

TIP: Slice small parts of the ends off the tomatoes so they stand upright when stuffed.
