Cucumber Salad with Fresh Herbs, Orange Segments and Citrus Dressing

Each holiday I love to make new food memories and spice up family traditions by adding a new recipes from the garden to the menu.  This year I’ve got some super yummy additions to Easter dinner that I know my family and friends are going to love.  As we head into the weekend I’m going to share a few new recipes you will want to give a try this Spring so be sure to check out Spring Recipes and of course subscribe to my Creative Living with Bren Newsletter where I share recipe links and more. Today’s recipe share is one that you can easily grow most of the veggies and herbs in most any spring home garden.  I’ve been dying to add more citrus trees to my garden here in Ohio and this recipe has inspired me to check out Orange trees that can be grown in containers – sounds like a great addition to the geodesic bio dome don’t ya think?!
