Hippie Nachos


Okay… I’ve heard these referred to as “White People Nachos”, “Nachos Flanders-Style” (from the Simpsons) and the like. Whatever you call them, they are delicious. Whip these up as a quick appetizer, an afternoon snack, or a light dinner. If you really want to guild the local lily, use a home grown cucumber, make some ricotta (see reference below about home-cheese making) and dry up some salt water from the next time you are in Santa Cruz. Your superiority complex will soar in the faces of all your locavor friends.

1 large Armenian cucumber
½ cup soft, fresh cheese (goat, cottage, ricotta, farmers)
1/8 cup fresh herbs (I like dill or tarragon the best. Parsley is great too).
Salt and pepper to taste

Slice cucumber into ¼ inch rings. Arrange on plate. Top with a dab of cheese, herbs, salt and pepper. Serve!
