Simple and Easy Cucumber Salad

Today recipe for the 6th day of the blogging marathon, is probably the easiest one since I started blogging....not that most of the recipe are not easy, but this one beats all hands down!!
With just one main ingredients and rest of the items which are always stacked in the pantry, it makes for quick easy crunchy who can beat that! ?? lol....
Now this is not only a quick salad, but if your kids love to eat cucumber, you could try it this way and they might just enjoy the change.


1 large cucumber, thinly sliced
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp Lemon Juice
1 tbsp sugar (or less)
1/4 tsp salt
pinch of black pepper
1 tbsp chopped parsley


Thinly slice the cucumber with the skin on.

Mix water, lemon juice, sugar, salt and black pepper.

Add to cucumber and chill for at least 1-3 hours.

Before serving, drain the liquid and add chopped parsley.

Serve chilled.
