This recipe is one you will want to have in your arsenal because it’s so easy to whip up and can be made up to 2 days ahead of serving. This makes it a great choice as a side dish for a holiday meal or to bring along with you to a potluck.
You need very few ingredients to make this salad so I have often made this when we are invited to a gathering and I want to bring something along but don’t have time to run to the grocery store. I always have every one of these ingredients in the fridge and pantry.
Our son Einstein loves cucumbers (which is a big part of the reason why I always have at least one in the fridge!). He eats entire cucumbers in a single snack, so I suspected he was going to love this salad and I was right! He also happens to be our gluten free kid, so I’m always happy when I can add another gluten free recipe onto the list of ones he likes.
