Pea and Cucumber Salad


This is one of my favorite spring salads. It is very light and flavorful and originally came from the book Reversing Diabetes: Reduce or Even Eliminate Your Dependence on Insulin or Oral Drugs by Julian Whitaker, M.D. This book is not just a cookbook; it contains lots of terrific ideas about how to modify traditional recipes to reduce the fat and help you maintain a healthy blood sugar level. I have found it to be very helpful, and the recipes are really good.

About Lois

My husband, Don Crawford, and I love to cook. For me, it's more about eating delicious food than the actual cooking. I like to cook mostly because I like to eat, and I like the proud sense of accomplishment when the food I make is appreciated by others. For Don, it's all about presentation. So we make a good team. I'm too impatient to create beautiful presentations (usually), but he sweeps in and takes over so it all turns out great. All our recipes are tried and true!
