just chop it

While we’re on the topic of more veggies, summer-style eating after a winter of pastries…I say to you – just chop it.

There is a common theme – depending on the season – about what to do with the veggies in your frig. I’ve just started chopping them.

This week, it was chopped English cucumber, yellow pepper, grated carrot – with some feta, olive oil, lemon juice and a handful of pecans tossed in for extra crunch.

It was what I had on hand. It didn’t take much effort. And tasted pretty refreshing, as the temperature hovered around 30C even after dinner.

I think this will be a warm season regular. And with in-season veggies starting to come on strong, there will be no shortage of stuff to chop.
