I'm going to take you way out of the comfort zone with cucumbers today. You may need to pull some food faith out of your pocket and trust me.

Being an Allergy Friendly Chef is one of the most "Out of the Norm" kind of "cheffing" you'll probably ever have to do. I often ask myself, "do I love this because I am starving? Do I like this because I don't have another option? Do I eat this because I don't want to waste food?"

This is why I test all food recipes on people who do NOT have food allergies. I also trust you, yes you, to leave me your honest opinion & comments in these articles. Tell me if it was crap or if you loved it. Just tell me something. What did you think about The Cucumber Series: Part 1-3, so far? Helpful, stupid, boring, interesting, made you think, inventive, clever?

Day 4:

Cucumber Spread ....or Dip... or Filling- (it's whatever you say it is- just own it.)

  • 1/2 small cucumber
  • 1/2 apple
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/4 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon dill weed
  • small pinch of sea salt
  • hint of cayenne pepper (this stuff will knock your socks off if you aren't careful, little tiny bit will do)

(All the pictures of this are in the slide show)

Once you have this all in a bowl, get the fork out (or even a masher.)

Mush and Mash. Put some elbow into it.

It should be little chunky but get those flavors mushed together to make a dip/spread/filling.

It's going to give the body superhero powers but the point is for it to taste good so you make it again & again.
