Cucumber Salad

February 15, 2011


When it comes to kids, sometimes the most basic recipes turn out to be the most popular. It always amazes me how something so simple can be one of my kids’ favorite foods, but that’s why this Cucumber Salad is constantly in our family dinner rotation. When I put it on Kenya and Chloe’s plates, their eyes just light up.

I like to use Persian cucumbers in this recipe, but you can use any variety you have on hand. All I do is use a hand slicer for the cucumber, toss it with a bit of vinegar and sesame seeds and the kids are totally thrilled. That’s all it takes!
