Cool Cucumber Salad – Kid Friendly


The cucumbers are coming in almost faster than we can eat them, which is shocking since everyone in the house loves cucumbers.

The most frustrating thing for me is that cucumbers like to hide in the garden.  No matter how diligent I think I am in searching for cucumbers, I always end up with a few that are fatter than I like to use in a cucumber/tomato salad.  These cucumbers are great for a light, fresh pickled salad – the Cool Cucumber Salad from Better Than Peanut Butter & Jelly by Marty Mattare.  It is a vegetarian cookbook aimed at foods for kids, and I have to say that when my son tasted this, he immediately asked for more.

So, tonight my son had some with his fish sticks and ever-present grape tomatoes (from the garden).

We had some with our Eggplant and Tomato Stew.
