As some of you are aware, YAT – known here on Our Shiputzim for his edifying and elucidating comments – is IY”H celebrating his bar mitzvah this weekend.
In honor of the occasion, I was asked by YAT’s mother – an occasional Our Shiputzim commenter herself – to prepare a cucumber salad for Shabbat.
Here’s YZG’s sister’s recipe - with a few slight modifications which reflect the Shiputzim family’s tastes:
- 8-10 cucumbers, sliced thin in the food processor
- 1 onion, sliced thin in the food processor
- 2-3 scallions, very coarsely chopped
- 1/2 – 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 1 cup water
- Parsley, chopped
- 1/2 tsp salt
Place the vegetables in a bowl. Prepare the dressing, and pour over the vegetables. Mix, and chill for several hours before serving.
The entire Our Shiputzim staff wishes to extend a very warm mazal tov to YAT and his parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles and cousins!
