I was coming home from the store this weekend and I got stuck at the gates behind some guy who couldn’t figure out how to open the gate. As I’m sitting there, waiting for him to figure out how to punch in the key code, I looked over towards the pool area and saw a bunch of people go in all ready to dive in the pool. It was like a sledge hammer hitting me over the head… it’s already mid April and it’s beautiful weather outside!! How in the world did it become pool time already?

I am so not summer, pool or beach ready! My year has been so crazy so far, I haven’t even stopped to think about what time of the year it was. I need to hassle and get myself together for the beach season, which is the next 8 months here in Florida.

To help me get ready for the beach season, I am making some delicious food substitutions. For my nacho cravings, I crated these fabulous veggie nachos.  I used a bunch of different veggies mixed with some fresh key lime juice. To complement these nachos, I made a cool and skinny cucumber dressing made with Greek yogurt and key lime zest. I also got some TEN Sodas at WalMart to go with my fabulous skinny nachos!

Cool Veggie Nachos & Canada Dry TEN

TEN Sodas come in many varieties, like 7-up TEN, Sunkist TEN, Canada Dry TEN & A&W TEN. I love Canada Dry Ginger Ale so I was very happy to find it in a light version but still has the FULL flavor of Ginger Ale! You would never know that they are not the original. In fact, hubs didn’t know! He loved this Canada Dry TEN and kept asking me if I was sure that it’s not the regular Canada Dry Ginger Ale.

As for this amazing Skinny Cucumber Dressing, you can make it for just about anything, not just nachos. Make it for your salads, as a dip or for sandwiches. It’s delicious and super easy!

  1. What a smart and creative way to enjoy a lighter version of a normally fattening comfort food! Love it!!

  2. What a great idea, Lyuba, I don’t think I will even miss the cheese and beans, well maybe just a little :)

  3. I simply love cucumbers!!We buy the three pack English type at Sams/Costco. We go through those in less than a week. We have a huge salad every night and I didn’t even know about the “10” . I don’t usually drink sodas but I’ll have to try the Ginger Ale. If we want fizzly we usually do the San Pelligrino. Today is grocery day so I am going to get the ingredients to make your dip!!

  4. Lyuba, I constantly have nacho cravings! These look so divine with the dressing …and the tasty beverage! I wish we had 8 long months of summer over here in Utah. Pools around here don’t even open until the majority of schools get out, which is AFTER the first week of June! (We get out before Memorial Weekend.) Then our summer is over in early September. Looks like I might have to come to Florida to finish out Summer! :)

    • You know that I miss winter :) I am so not a summer person, so 8 months is too long for me!
      Thank you, Gloria!

  5. I love Nachos! These look amazing. Wow.

  6. I love just about any thing with the word “nacho” in the name, and these look especially awesome, Lyuba!

  7. I Love this delicious, veggie-packed twist on nachos!!
