Two Thumbs Up for This Curtis Stone – Recipe He is on TV, there is a life-sized cut out of him in the Owatonna Hy-Vee floral department, and his recipes are featured in the Season’s magazine and Hy-Vee stores. However, I just had to know…are his recipes as good as Curtis Stone’s striking good looks?
So, I was craving something seasonal, fresh and new to try to go along with the hot and sunny weather we are supposed to have this week (keeping my fingers crossed). Then I came across the Curtis Stone display (near the meat department in the Owatonna store) and saw a recipe with cucumbers, tomatoes and avocado on it called “Tomato and Avocado Salad.” So I thought, why not…it sounds delicious; I will give it a try. I gathered the ingredients, went home and whipped up the recipe in 15 minutes and decided to take it and eat it at lunch today on top of a bed of mixed greens and some cottage cheese.
The verdict? Yum…boy, is that good! If you like avocadoes, basil, tomatoes, olives, balsamic vinegar or anything Mediterranean-like, you will love this recipe! Sorry, not giving any more details at this time. You will have to head to your local Hy-Vee store while recipes last! Or, you will just have to contact me via e-mail or phone at Hy-Vee (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org / Owatonna Hy-Vee: 507-451-0138/ (507) 835-8030).
Enjoy the good weather while it lasts and eat some Tomato and Avocado Salad for the 4th of July or …just because!
