A Refreshing Change of Pace

During a visit to Whole Foods last week, I was perusing the salad bar for something inspirational (i.e., something healthy and tasty that I haven't eaten a hundred times already) for lunch. I was delighted to find a very simple salad that I can easily replicate at home: sliced cucumber, red onion, and fresh dill, with a vinaigrette dressing. Since I love to eat salads, but quickly tire of the same old ingredients, finding this easy idea let me give my usual standbys (spinach and roasted chicken or turkey, tomatoes, cucumber, and goat cheese) a rest. Best of all, I can make a big bowl of it in under 10 minutes. I keep it in the fridge to snack on or use it as a side dish at dinner.
