Today you are a… YAT

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:

Lemon-Cucumber Salad


  • 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!


  1. Mazel tov to YAT. I can't keep all the acronyms on your blog straight; I hope you'll forgive me.

    Salad sounds delicious.

  2. thank you every one

  3. Leora - LOL about the acronyms! I'm sure no one can keep them straight. (Even some of our relatives have asked me things like, "Who's that ABC person you were talking about on your blog?")

    YAT - בהצלחה with everything!
