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!

  1. I didn’t have sesame seeds on hand (and wasn’t sure my toddler would eat them), so I just mixed a few drops of sesame oil into the rice wine vinegar. Fantastic!!!

  2. […] so its hard for me to think otherwise. My favorite way to eat them is plain with salt or like a cucumber salad sliced up into coins and then with seasoned rice vinegar sprinkled over them, maybe add a little […]

  3. They have a menu item similar to this at almost all sushi restaurants. At my favorite one they put sliced shrimp or sliced crab meat in with it and it is YUMMY. I like to use Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegar when I make it from home. Its at almost every grocery store.

  7. The rice wine vinegar really gives it the unique flavor. But you can do different variations of you like 🙂

  8. I love it with vinegar, thinly sliced onions and a little bit a white sugar. That’s right: white sugar and I am so not ashamed. 😉 lol

  9. We love cucumber salad in our house! I’ve never tried the sesame seeds but I love anything with sesame seeds so I’m sure this will be a hit.

  10. Cucumber salad is awesome! Never tried it with sesame seeds, but now I sure will. Our favorite is with cucumbers, vinegar and fresh dill.

  11. I love rice wine vinegar but just noticed that HFCS is the third ingredient on the brand that I use. Have you found one that does not contain this? Love your site!
