This week's cookbook sneak peek comes to us from the wild and exotic land of the Midwest United States! 😉 I know, I know, it may not exactly be a wild locale ... but with its Eastern European roots infused with a heavy dose of farmland Americana ingredients, food from this region is indeed exotic to a Pacific Northwesterner like me.

The recipe comes to us from fellow food blogger, Lindsey Shifley of TheMullies.com. Lindsey's Grandma Millie taught her how to make her famous cucumber salad, and now Lindsey is teaching us! Thanks, Lindsey!

You can try the rest of the recipes from the Midwest chapter of the Taste Of The Place cookbook by grabbing your copy over in the shop.
