It's SRC time again! What's SRC? It's the Secret Recipe Club, where each month, we're assigned another blogger, and we get to pick a recipe from their blog to make. This month, I got Oh! You Cook!, where Dena shares recipes proving kosher and delicious aren't mutually exclusive. For this edition of the SRC, I wanted to choose something extra delicious since the Secret Recipe Club's coming to an end, and this reveal is the last one. Looking through Dena's archives, I had no problems picking a recipe. Where I ran into issues was narrowing down the selection. We weren't feeling well, so I thought about making some congee, and with my love of chai, I definitely wanted to make her chai latte oatmeal. Or course, I also saw gulab jamun, one of James' favorites. However, as we had a surprisingly warm day, I wanted something cool and refreshing. Something like a Peanut Lime Cucumber Salad. It'd been a while since we'd had some Thai flavors around here, and it was definitely time to remedy that! And what better way than this cool and refreshing peanut lime cucumber salad? Another plus - it's super simple - my type of recipe! Simply whisk together your dressing, then combine all materials! YUM!

What's your favorite version of cucumber salad?

  7. This sounds delicious (perfect for Florida) and would make a great side to go with our weekly Asian flavored dinner. My version has onions, oranges and peanuts in it too.
