Citrus Cucumber Salad

Citrus Cucumber Salad

I credit my mother-in-law for this recipe!
I’d never had this style of cucumber salad, until eating at her place but it quickly became a favourite!

It’s easy to make and so far all who’ve tried it, generally love it 😉

As most my recipes, it’s pretty open to interpretation 😜

You can cut the cucumber thinly or use a mandolin slicer, I like to just use a knife.
You can leave the skin or remove.
All personal preference 💁🏻‍♀️

I usually make it at least 20 minutes before dinner so it can get nice and juicy 😉👌🏻



1 large cucumber
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 lemons


Peel or don’t and then mandolin or slice, the cucumber.
Add in the lemon juice and sugar, mix and refrigerate until serving.

Easy as one, two, three! 💁🏻‍♀️

Sometimes for something different I add in some strawberries & I’m going to try adding in mint the next time it’s available


Enjoy and let me know if you try it!! 🍴

Hello humans 😊 This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life 😊
