Cucumber Pineapple Salad-10 (1 of 1)

Guys, I am so excited about my new spiralizer I ordered online. I have seen so many fun looking recipes online using a spiralizer, I just had to be a part of it and try it out myself. I honestly can’t believe how easy it is to use. I’m telling you, if you don’t have one, go and order one right now. You’ll love it. I have so many ideas for recipes that I want to try. The possibilities are endless.

I ordered mine from Amazon here. It is such a good price and totally worth the money.

With my new handy dandy gadget I came up with this Cucumber Pineapple Salad.

It was so good!

It is the perfect summer salad for a hot day and you know what? The kids loved it. Hooray! A salad that the kids actually wanted more of. I think they love the pineapple in it. Not to mention they found the spiral noodle like pieces of cucumber fascinating. 

If you want to make a salad that’s a little bit different but really really good, try this one. It’ll be a hit. And if you have any fabulous spiralizer recipes, please share in the comments section below. I’d love to add some to my collection.

Summer Dill & Cucumber Salad

Summer Dill & Cucumber Salad is also an Eastern European salad called “Mizeria”. The flavours of cucumber and dill blend together perfectly to make a fresh tasting cuke salad.



Yesterday was an exciting day for the little boys in this house. We went to the mall and waited for 3 1/2 hours to meet Matt Murray and the Stanley cup. Most of you know my boys all play hockey and love all things hockey, so this was exciting for them. Matt Murray is the goaltender for the Pittsburgh Penguins and they Won the Stanley Cup this year. Since Matt is from my hometown he brought the cup here for the locals to enjoy too. (See some pics on my Instagram)

Anyhow, I grew up eating this “Mizeria” salad quite often. We had this all year long though, not just in the summer. My dad made it most of the time if I recall correctly. And it’s actually quite simple. Only a few ingredients. It tastes fresh and summery and is simply delightful.

You can slice the cucumbers with a knife. I happen to have a mandolin slicer, so I used the thin setting to slice it.

Add some chopped fresh dill and green onions, mix in the sour cream dressing and that’s it. Super simple right? Perfect for a BBQ side dish.
