Hello there!

Suffering with Interstitial Cystitis (IC) and looking for answers? In my blog, I explore more ways than the "established routes to treatment" and try to open up hearts and minds to other, non-invasive and safer alternatives. We explore the realms of dis-ease, nutrition, health, and wellness and make changes in order to HEAL, not just treat.

Cucumber Boats

I brought some produce out and started to CREATE!  I didn't know if this would fly but WOW! I loved this! The mom and kids loved it too.  Quote from 6-year old, "This is thirty hundred times bomb diggity!"  Of course I taught her the phrase "bomb diggity."  I peeled the cucumbers because they were not organic.  Feel free to wash well and keep skins on for organic produce.  We played around with calling this delectable, mouth-watering delight "Cucumber Mouth Orgasm" but I thought that would be a bit too risqué!
The cooling cucumber and smooth-tasting avocado really balance out the hot garlic and spicy ginger and the tangy dressing for the topping.  We went a bit further and added scoops of homemade Horseradish to give it a real bite!  Whoa - this was totally fabulous!!!

1 Cucumber (makes 4 boats)
Cut out middle portion of cucumbers - the seeds - in order to fill with filling, use seeds for filling too.
Small lettuce leaves for lining (3 lettuce lvs. each boat)

3 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 half-dollar sized chunk of ginger, finely minced
Inner seeds of cucumber, finely chopped
1/2 avocado, finely chopped
Mix all in bowl

Dressing from recipe "Hearty Salad" posted before.
Equal parts Garlic Vinegar, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and Tahini
plus 1 T Garam Marsala, 1 pinch salt in PINT sized jar.  Shake and dabble on top.
Save rest for later salads.  Refrigerate.
