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.
1/2 cucumber (sliced thin and quartered)
2 green onions (chopped) or 2 slices red onions (chopped)
1 cup peas (cooked and cooled)
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon tarragon
1/4 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste
Mix the first 3 ingredients together. Then whisk the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl and pour them over the vegetables. Mix and serve on a bed of lettuce. Simple and beautiful.
