Vegetable Love


Susan at FatFree Vegan Kitchen is hosting the second annual Vegetable Love blogging event. My submission is vegan, completely fat free, and has scarcely any calories. It’s also more fun than romantic, but was made with love nonetheless.




This simple appetizer combines classic flavors and lets your sweetheart know...

You Float My Boat

Cucumber Boats

1 pickling cucumber
2 T. finely minced mango
2 T. finely minced red onion
1 t. fresh lime juice
1 t. chopped cilantro or parsley
dash of salt

Wash the cucumber and cut the ends. Slice it in half, then slice the halves lengthwise. (Cut the bottoms if necessary so they lay flat.) To make “sails,” cut thin slices from the tops, making sure not to cut all the way through. Secure the sails with a toothpick. Scoop out the seeds from the boat.

Mix together remaining ingredients and fill each boat.
