Cucumber Dill Salad

Adding more raw food into your diet is an excellent way to keep your kitchen and your body cool as the weather heats up. Cucumbers and mint are exceptionally cooling to the body and tossed up with lemon and dill, they’re very tasty, too. Enjoy this quick and easy recipe as a light lunch or first course.



3 medium cucumbers (about 4 cups cucumber slices)

1/2 cup chopped dill

1/2 cup chopped scallions

1/4 cup lemon juice

1 tablespoon dried mint or 3 tablespoons fresh chopped mint

3/4 teaspoon salt


Slice your cucumbers into very thin rounds either by hand or using a mandoline. Toss with all remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Place in the refrigerator to chill until ready to serve.

Working at the levels of both the physical and energetic, my purpose is to guide you towards thriving health and unwavering happiness. The foundation of my culinary work is conscious nourishment—inspiring you to cultivate awareness of the foods that truly serve your well-being. With this essential awareness, you can make your highest foods choices. I advocate a pure, organic, plant based diet, high in living foods. A pure diet cleanses us in body, mind & spirit. It is these foods that bring us to new levels of vitality and radiance while activating our intuition and spiritual connection. My published works include three cookbooks: Pure Pleasures, Cupcake Heaven & Raw Food Juice Bar, filled with satisfying and sustainable living food recipes. I am trained in Luminous Healing & Energy Medicine through the Light Body School of The Four Winds Society. Combining these timeless teachings with my dietary experience, I am honored to bring a uniquely holistic approach to my work. I find the fusion of shamanism with pure food nutrition exceptionally powerful knowing that complete healing requires that we tend to each level of our being–the physical, emotional and spiritual. Though I am a wanderer at heart, I am currently living & loving in Santa Cruz, CA where I enjoy exploring the forests & coast, practicing yoga, sitting in ceremony & indulging in lots of luscious food.
