Cool like a cucumber. We’d have to agree, cucumbers are cool and we’re pretty sure most people would agree. It’s the one vegetable that usually can sneak in kids lunches, on an appie tray, a restaurant salad and won’t be left. We love it’s versatility pairing with different food and a cucumber’s ability to casually pop flavour. We needed to honor the cucumber…LOL.
Setting out on our mission, we knew right away what we needed to do. We paired one of our families favorite vegetables with green onions and the rest followed naturally. Growing up eating cucumber salads we knew what was our favorite about this simple salad- fresh dill!
We can’t forget to mention that another incredible thing about cucumber salad is that it takes 5-10 min to make! Let the games begin…if you have a mandolin for slicing, pull it out! This will make things even faster.
WARNING! CAUTION! No laughing…this is a serious matter! Mandolins are SHARP as Stacey discovered slicing the tip of her finger. Well we suppose you can laugh. We sure did. But watch out…don’t make the same mistake. There is a guard for a reason. Use it. Enough said. Moving on.
Alright the bandaids are on, cucumbers are sliced, and green onions are chopped. Let’s continue by making the dressing.
