We're picking one or two long English cucumbers everyday right now...so many to keep up with. Some sort of cucumber dish is on the menu each night and this was one of them. Extremely easy and refreshing! —inpatskitchen

large clove garlic, mashed or put through a garlic press
Juice of one large lime
ancho chili powder
grapeseed oil (or another neutral oil)
cooked chickpeas (or in a pinch, one 15 ounce can, rinsed and drained)
nice size English cucumber, cut into a small dice
Salt and pepper to taste

I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I learned...to this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining.
My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!
