Dorothy was right. There really is no place like home. We just got back Saturday after a lazy month in Florida eating way too much delicious but not-so-good-for-us food, cocktails *may* have been served mid-afternoon, binge reading (list down below), kayaking, shark tooth hunting and toes in the sand most days.

The trip was made even better with visits from our good friends and when our kids all came down for a week. Arriving home, there were all sorts of big girl stuff that needed attention like laundry, sorting through mail, unpacking and trying to get back on a smarter eating path starting with this Chickpea Tomato Cucumber Salad.

Cucumber Salad ~ fresh, crisp cucumbers sliced in a Greek yogurt, lemon-dill dressing. Assembles in 10 minutes and goes perfectly with almost any meal.

For some reason I always associate this creamy, lemon-herb dressed Cucumber Salad with summer, farm stands and grilling, but last week I happened to have all the ingredients in the refrigerator and was looking for an easy side so I made it with Apricot Glazed Pork Tenderloin.

I realized I be totally crazy saving this easy, tasty, healthy side dish just for summer.

You can make it with full fat sour cream but I’ve abandoned that ship for plain Greek yogurt in a lot of recipes, saving my calories for dessert.
