Cucumber & Sausage Green Salad
1 t cooking oil
2 sausages, diced (I used smoked chicken pesto sausages.. any would be fine)
1 lemon, juiced
salt & pepper TT
1 T olive oil
4 Persian cucumbers (I found these at Trader Joe's... you could use one English cucumber instead)
3 C or so salad greens
1. Heat a saute pan over medium-high heat and add the cooking oil.
2. Saute the sausage until well-browned and then remove to cool.
3. Add the lemon juice to the pan with a bit of salt & pepper and the 1 T olive oil. Scrape the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon and mix to incorporate; this is your salad dressing.
4. Combine all the ingredients when the sausage is pretty cool. Serve as-is or with bread.
