Make ahead Guacamole Tip

Plastic wrap keeps air out! 


In addition to fresh lime juice keeping guacamole from turning this little trick helps a ton, too.
Place a layer or two of plastic wrap over dip and push all air out, along sides and top layer. Plastic will keep air out, which turns the dip brown. Cover with lid container for best results.

Cucumber Salad

Simple and delicious!  Low carb, too.


This is a modified version of the classic Italian dish my grandma made, adapted for my carnivorous, low-carb loving husband!

Ingredients:
- 2 English Cucumbers extremely thinly sliced in halves
- Cherry Tomatoes, cut in half
- 1/4 - 1/3 cup thinly sliced yellow onion
- 1/3 cup white vinegar
- 3- 4 T Olive Oil
- 2 T sugar
- Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste

Flavors will blend as they sit. Season to your preference with more or less vinegar / olive oil.

Refrigerate until ready to serve.
