Cucumber Peanut and Chive Salad

I have a few more cucumbers left in my garden. This year I have been truly blessed. Between my Mother-in-Law and Mrs. Barnes who lives down the street I have a bumper crop of wonderful cucumbers. I have canned dill and bread and butter pickles. I have made the traditional cucumber onion and vinegar salad more times than I care to admit.

I was looking for something a bit different to enjoy these wonderful green jewels of goodness.  The chives are not as strong as the usual spanish onions I pair with in this salad. I love the peanuts. They add a bit of texture that goes well with it. I thought about adding some feta cheese, but didnt have any to put in it. Next time I think I will.

Cucumber Peanut and Chive Salad


3 cups peeled and sliced cucumbers

2 tablespoons chopped peanuts

1/4 cup rice wine vinegar

1 tablespoon olive oil

3 tablespoon chopped chives

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper


Put the cucumbers and peanuts in a large bowl. In a small bowl whisk vinegar, oil, chives salt and pepper. Add vinegar mixture to cucumber and peanut mixture. Toss to coat. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.

Peace be with you,
