Cucumber Salad

Having grown up on Hungarian food. This is one recipe I continue to use.

peel cucumber
slice as thin as possible
sprinkle with sea salt
add crushed or chopped garlic
add a small amount of vinegar
sprinkle with black pepper and paprika
cover and let it sit a while to marinade
mix and serve
If any is left store in refrigerator, delicious next day too!

Look at this gorgeous fruit, acerola.
Super high in vitamin C.
Beautiful little red berries. They look like miniature apples.

Blend acerola with water.
Add agave.

Have been drinking tons of it.

I've been Tagged

I've been tagged by the lovely Carmella of The Sunny Raw Kitchen.
I am to list five things that you may not know about me.
Here they are:
1. I live in Brazil six months of the year, escaping the winter months of New York; when it is gorgeous summer in Bahia, Brazil (I am there now).
2. I was born in Budapest, Hungary.
3. I speak Hungarian, English, Spanish and learning Portuguese.
4. Absolutely love to listen to and go to
Krishna Das' concerts. Beautiful, powerful devotional chants.
5. I am very involved in helping a small community in
Bahia, Brazil.

I am tagging five others.
Raw Girl in Japan, Penni at Real Juice Daily, Rediscover Raw Food, Gina at My Craft & Sewing Projects, and Julie at Is there a Shadow?
The rules are: link your tagger, share five facts about yourself, tag 5 people at the end of your post, linking them and let them know they've been tagged by leaving a comment at their blog. Post the rules.
Have fun!
