Mid-week Munchies

Are you currently suffering from the same case of the post- holiday, mid-week munchies we are @TheYLife? You know, it’s that feeling, where all you want to do after a long day of re-acclimating to your “routine”- is give- in to your deepest desire and dive for the 1/4 wrinkled bag of Tostito’s.

You feel bad, because it was left lonely and abandoned on Monday in the cub-bard, simply due to the fact they were semi– I repeat, SEMI- crushed. BUT, simultaneously you know in your heart of hearts you will feel extraordinarily guilty the second you indulge in that salty, crunchy, corn- chip we recently linked as a culprit in L’s ‘expansion’!

So we have a quick and easy Greek inspired Cucumber Salad that will not only fill your tummy, but also your heart.

L’s Easy As 1-2-3 Greek CuCumber’s:

1 English Cucumber (Peeled, Halved and Sliced- avg. 2 Cups)

1 Cup Vine Ripened Heirloom Tomatoes, Quartered & De-seeded

1/4 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 Tbsp. Red Wine Vinegar

2 Tbsp. Fresh Mint, Minced

1 Tbsp. Dried Oregano

1/4 Tsp. Course Kosher Salt

Pepper 2 Taste

A Bed of Wild Arugula

It’s Easy as 1-2-3! And if you are in the mood to get adventurous add 1/4 Cup of Feta Cheese and some Olives to make it 100% Greek! L went the Vegan route, which is pretty great too!

απολαμβάνω (enjoy)!
