Two new salads in two days.

It's been hot.  Really very hot.  We have been practically living on salads and veggie burgers so I figured I could easily blog about at least 2 of them today.  I have a huge backlog of other photos/recipes to share but I never seem to get around to it.  Soon?  I hope so!  Yesterday we had these black bean burgers and an asparagus salad--super simple and delicious.  Today was these pinto bean sausages with rice and a cucumber salad--also very quick and easy!  This weekend we are off camping so I hope to share some of our meals from that on Monday.  Have a great weekend everybody!!

Asparagus Salad

1 bunch asparagus, lightly steamed and cut
1 finely chopped red pepper
1/2 finely chopped red onion
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
juice from half lemon
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tsp dijon mustard
salt and pepper

*In a large bowl, mix together asparagus, red pepper, and onion
*In small bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients and pour over vegetables.
*Refrigerate for at least one hour.

Cucumber Salad

2 cucumber, halved-seeded-and sliced
3 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper
