Cucumber Noodles with BBQ'd Corn and Lemon-Dill Dressing
I think I'm in love...with Lolo the Vegan Yum Yum Lady for intoducing me to cucumber noodles, among other things. Today's lunch was inspired by her cucumber noodles with sweet corn & creamy brazil nut sauce post from last summer. In this heat, who doesn't want to be as "cool as a cucumber?" Bah-dum, okay, I had to say it. Ahem... Anyways, I confess I didn't go raw though like Lolo did, I used BBQ corn on the cob kernels that had cooled to room temp. Yum, yum, YUM!Cucumber Noodles are in!
2 1/2 tbsp Nayonnaise
1 tbsp fresh dill
1 tbsp lemon juice
Salt & pepper to taste
Snip dill into fine pieces with scissors and whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl. Pour over noodles and toss gently. Sprinkle pumpkin or sunflower seeds on top, if desired.
To make the noodles I used this instrument, which I think is actually a lemon zester? Hey, whatever works, right?!
