Cucumber Salad

May 4th, 2009 · No Comments

cukeCucumber season is upon us! We delight in a variety of dishes that have cucumbers in them but our all-time favorite is a simple cucumber salad ideal for keeping little hands busy.

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 cucumbers
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar (you can add more if you like it sweeter)
  • 1/2 cup water

Peel the cucumber and cut it lengthways.

Remove the seeds by running a spoon down the center where they grow. A cucumber is basically a melon. Pretend you’re scooping out a melon. Or making a jack-o-lantern.

Cut the cucumbers into bite-sized pieces.

Mix the vinegars and the sugar in a bowl. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add the water and then the cucumbers. Refrigerate for a couple of hours and serve chilled.
