Crisp and Refreshing: Cucumber and Celery Salad

In the spirit of "National Picnic Day", I set out to make a dinner inspired by my favorite picnic flavors and breezy meals spent spread out on a blanket under the sky.

Although our weather isn't quite what I'd like it to be, one bite of this salad, and I can almost feel the warm summer breeze, and see the fireflies floating around our backyard.

This crisp and refreshing Cucumber and Celery Salad is healthy, light, brightly flavored, and easy to put together- perfect for a picnic!

Cucumber and Celery Salad
Serves 4

1 English cucumber, halved lengthwise
3 stalks celery
1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
1tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp parsley

Using mandolin (or good sharp Chef's knife), slice cucumber and celery thin; place in large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together yogurt, lemon juice, salt, pepper, sugar and parsley. Pour yogurt mixture over vegetable mixture, and gently mix to combine.
