If you’re having a party or simply searching for a dish for dinner, Pinterest is a great platform to find the perfect recipe. I pin 10 or 15 recipes every time I log-on the addictive site and RARELY go back and actually make any of these dishes. Not any more! I decided to bite the bullet and whip up one of these summer salads.
Like a lot of busy-home-chefs out there, I tend to choose the recipes that are quick, healthy and requires minimal or no cooking.

What You Need:
• 1 large, seedless cucumber
• 3 large avocados
• Juice of 1 lemon
• ⅓ cup crumbled feta cheese
• 1 Tbsp finely chopped fresh dill

My baby who is not really a baby, but will always be my baby got her wisdom teeth out recently.
Once she had eaten all the ice cream and mashed potatoes she could stand, I remembered my best friend’s mom has the best apple sauce recipe and it’s completely healthy!!!
20 apples and 1/4 water is ALL you need!! (I prefer Jonathan or McIntosh because they are tart).
Quarter the apples and discard the core. Put them in a pot with 1/4 cup water turn stove to high and cover. Let them steam for 20-30 min or they will begin to fall apart.
Put them in a colander that is placed inside a larger bowl.
Take a spoon and mash away!
Let cool and ENJOY!!! You can even freeze this yummy deliciousness!
