Asian Cucumber Salad

Cool as a cucumber. In the summer months, this phrase takes on a literal meaning. Cucumbers are primarily composed of water, making them the perfect summer thirst-quencher. Look for cukes that are dark green, firm, slender and un-waxed so you can eat the fiber-rich skin. Persian cucumbers, smaller and rarely bitter, are especially popular these days.

When you have a stash of cucumbers on a hot summer day, the first step is cutting four round slices. Next, find a relaxing place to sit, preferably by a pool. Place two slices in a glass of ice water for sipping. Place two slices over your eyes. Ahhhhh. Pure relaxation. When your stomach starts to growl it’s time to slice more cucumbers, this time for dinner.

Sisson’s Super Bowl Tips: Take 2

For the 22 players on the field this Sunday, the Super Bowl represents a time to showcase their strength, power, endurance, and – perhaps most importantly – will to win. It’s a chance to be the best, to score 365 days-worth of bragging rights, and to become the owner of a much-coveted Super Bowl ring (although at this point, I think it’s best to politely ignore the fact that they’re fighting for a splashy piece of jewelry!)

For the rest of us, Super Bowl Sunday is really not much more than an excuse to laze around on the couch and gorge on chips, dip, sub-par pizza and an endless supply of beer!
