I am sure that all of you are very excited about upcoming weekend. We are going to celebrate the Father’s Day at Tom’s parents house tomorrow. Since the weather supposed to be really nice I think we will enjoy the fresh air outside, chill out on the backyard and of course make some BBQ delights for dinner.
In case you are heading out to someone’s house for the BBQ, here is the perfect recipe that you can take with you. It make a delicious accompaniment to a variety of grilled meats, poultry, tempeh or tofu.
Tzatziki inspired salad
1 English cucumber
1/2 large red pepper, chopped
1/2 cup of cherry tomatoes, chopped
1/4 red onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups mixed greens or kale
1/4-1/2 cup of plain yogurt (Since I don’t eat dairy so I used non dairy plain yogurt, you can use a Greek yogurt).
1 tsp lemon juice, 2 Tbsp olive oil, 2 tsp red wine vinegar, salt, ground black pepper, 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
Cut cucumber into chunks, place in a large bowl, add rest of the veggies. Stir the yogurt with the olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, vinegar and spices. Add the mixture to your salad and toss it. Let it sit in your fridge for about an hour before serving.
Hope, you will enjoy it,
I will not celebrate Father’s Day with my dad this year, and probably it will not happen soon. But I will think about you on June 23rd. It is the Father’s Day in Poland. You are the best dad in the world!!!
