This month’s Creative Cooking Crew theme was either a fruit or vegetable presented three different ways.
I decided on fruit…that gorgeous cucumber…refreshing, low cal and delicious.
Cucumber Sake-Gin Martini:
I used cucumber, of course, frozen grapes, gin, sake and lime juice adapting this recipe from Epicurious.com.
Greek yogurt seasoned with mint and basil, basil mint infused virgin olive oil, salt and pepper.
Finally, a refreshing Cucumber-Lime Granita:
The granita was just simple syrup, cucumber juice of one lime and its zest. One of the most refreshing things I have ever tasted. I am hooked on granitas.
