Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

Avocado Cucumber Salad

For the mayonnaise lovers out there, this one’s for you. Inspired by Julia Turshen, it’s quick, easy, and so good even if you’re not pregnant. Start by mixing two tablespoons of mayonnaise with the juice of one lime, some kosher salt, and a few hefty squirts of Sriracha.

The most important about this dish is finding the perfect avocado, not too soft yet not too firm. When the avocado stars do align combine your diced avocado with a cut up seedless cucumber, a sliced scallion, and the mayonnaise mixture. And don’t do what I did and add it all at once, add a bit, mix, a bit more, mix, and maybe a bit more…you can’t take it back out.
