How to Make Cucumber Salad for a Dutchman

I don’t like Cucumber Salad.

Or food really.

“Whaaat?!?!”, you say. “Gasp!”, you say.  “Feeeeliiing. Faaaainnt.”,you say.

I know. I know. You’re okay.

Also, I mighta exaggerated a lil there. I’m just the world’s pickiest eater.

And being the world’s pickiest eater means I don’t like cooking either. Like, at all.

But, because sometimes your incredibly attractive, farm boy husband comes home from work early with a fever and says, with puppy dog eyes, “I could reaaallly use some Cucumber Salad. Like we had when we were kids. Cuz I have a feeeever. And cucumbers are refreshing. And we have some in the garden…..”.

He lays it on thick doesn’t he?

What do ya do? You figure out the least time consuming way to make him some Cucumber Salad that won’t kill him. (Cooking goals: as few casualties as possible.)

So without further adieu….

Gather this stuff:
