I like to cook, and lately I've been trying some recipes that require a lot more fresh vegetables. Tonight I made what sounded like a delicious cucumber, mint and feta salad. It also had radishes and red onions!
The problem was the cucumbers and radishes. Both of them were totally and completely tasteless! I love cucumbers -- they smell like spring. And I like that little bite radishes give everything.
In tonight's salad, the cucumbers and radishes tasted almost identical -- like absolutely nothing.
So, I'll probably try the recipe again sometime. But in the future, I'll make sure I use locally grown and flavorful veggies.
