Ffwd: Tartine Regime, no dairy, no wheat
This is a beautifully simple recipe for something special.  But I have to admit that the english name "Dieter's" really made it unappealing for me.  Don't get me wrong, I am not opposed to dieting.  In fact I am sure I have been on one since I learned to spell the word.  It is just that the word diet implies a food that has no substance, no soul.  This recipe does and I made a couple alterations to make it perfect for just about any diet.  With inspiration from Kris Carr's Crazy Sexy Kitchen, here it is;

Take the slices from 2 of the tomatoes, chop them fine and mix in with the cheese.  Spread the cheese over the cucumber slices.  Top each with a slice of tomato. Sprinkle with Herbs de Provence, black pepper and salt.  Top with chives.  When it is close to serving time, finish with a light drizzle of olive oil.

Thank you thank you thank you - not only for being one of the very few Doristas to even admit ever dieting (in a week that I posted I am doing Atkins and passed on testing the tartine- why or why did I ever write this publicly ??:) but also for creating such a stunning version that is also low carb friendly. I survived looking at all other posts with bread that made my mouth water and was rewarded by finding your equally delish version. And I am so trying that cashew cream- oh YEAH.

Hey, this works. I agree that when you hang the word"diet" or "dieter's" or "no-fat" or the like on a recipe, it transposes to no soul and no suibstance. If you read my Post, youi will note that I took umbrage with the name of the recipe also!


Those would make elegant little appetizers for a summer garden party, I think. It's nice to see creative takes on wheat and dairy free that aren't all about approximations of the things they're replacing, but are instead delicious in their own right.


Cashew Cream Cheese is a nice twist. Cucumber toasts are perfect, and great for a party.
