Zesty Cucumber Salad

Zesty Cucumber Salad

My kids pack their lunches for school but seem to be in a rut lately. To give them a new option, I made this zesty cucumber salad. I saw this recipe on Fresh April Flours that looked tasty and I had all the ingredients on hand–I love that! I made this salad in minutes which is pretty handy on a busy weeknight. I had my kids try it after an hour and they both absolutely LOVED it. My son kept nibbling on it while I was taking photos and they are both excited to have something new in a few of their lunches this week.

    Hi. I was just wondering why you show an onion in the picture of ingredients but you don’t show adding an onion in the recipe.

    1. Carolann,

      Sorry! I have corrected the recipe to show 2 tbsp diced sweet yellow onion. Thanks for letting me know it was missing.

    1. I went to the original recipe on April’s site and she used half an onion. It is probably optional, especially for children’s lunches..

  2. So simple, yet so refreshing! A great side dish, especially in the summertime.

    I sampled a salad similar to this the other day and they had used huge chunks of raw white onion. It was unbearable – I had one piece of it and had onion breath the whole day! The flavor was way too strong for sure.

    If someone wanted to add onion to their recipe, I would highly recommend a red onion. They are perfect raw and would give the salad a pop of pretty color!

  3. Yum. Refreshing cucumber salad for the dark and dreary days of Winter. Thanks, Pam!
