Summer Nights? Chill With A Cucumber Salad
There nothing more
refreshing then a chilled salad to help bring down your body temperature
and your temper too. A cucumber salad is the fastest and easiest
way to do it.
Spice up your sex life
with a cucumber salad. It’s great for the heart, adds antioxidants
to the blood stream, cleanses the liver, helps clear up acne,
as well as strengthens the libido.
For the adventurers
who wish to grow their own, plan on four items to grow in your
windowsill or backyard garden:
1. Cucumbers –
You need well-composted soil, with a pH* of 7, a little organic
mulch or potting soil, regular watering but not a pool of water,
and 65 - 95 degree Fahrenheit weather. The seeds should be planted
approximately 1/2 - 1 inch below the surface. Grow your cucumbers
to the desired length.
2. Basil – Also
requires well-composted soil, 65 - 95 degree Fahrenheit weather,
just enough water to keep the plant happy but not soaked, and
a pH of 7. The seeds should be planted approximately 1/2 - 1 inch
below the surface.
3. Your favorite Tomato
to spice things up – Requires well-dug and well-aerated
soil, mulch, a little sand, organic fertilizers, a pH of 8, and
70 - 105 degree Fahrenheit weather. Grow to a bright red color,
but not a soft texture. The seeds should be planted approximately
1/2 - 1 inch below the surface.
4. Garlic – Buy
whole organic bulbs, split off cloves, and plant head up in sand.
Garlic requires a pH of 7, 55 - 95 degree Fahrenheit weather.
Don’t over water. The seeds should be planted approximately
1/2 - 1 inch below the surface.
Honey, time for dinner!!
Chop cucumbers, basil,
tomatoes, and one clove of garlic to the desired consistency.
Mix gently in a bowl. Lightly add olive oil and extra spices for
added flavor and fun – but don’t overdo the spices;
it takes too much away from the natural flavors.
