No, no, no…this fresh meal in no way made my tummy hurt, it’s just the name of the cucumber salad. I grew up in rural Illinois, a “corn fed dame” as my hubby from Long Island likes to call me. When the summer heat was at its peak, and generous friend’s gardens bursting, my family would have a meal very similar to that in the picture. My great aunt Jesse was the best bellyaches maker. Paper thin cukes, vidalia onion, white vinegar and lots of sugar and salt. My RAW bellyaches recipe (for a very small batch that is in no way sharable) is: 1 cucumber peeled and thinly sliced, 1/8 large vidalia thinly sliced, 2 T apple cider vinegar, 1 T agave, 1/2 t sea salt. I rounded out my corn-fed dame meal with some salted tomatoes and a quick chop of orange bell (from my friend’s garden!) and jalepeno peppers drizzled with olive oil. I did cook the corn (just can’t get a taste for raw), but I only got one bite before my baby stole it from my plate anyway!

    Mmmm! Bellyaches sounds great! And with a side of tomates with a pinch of salt and pepper what could be better? Oh and corn….love the stuff! That plate of goodness is very pleasing to the eye. 😀
