Quickie Friday- Quick Tip

I love to make fun food for the kids (and the kids at heart) and what is a fun way to eat cucumbers? Rippled of course. Eat them plain, will hold more dip because of the grooves if that’s the way you roll.

is really cheap. I bought it at Canadian Tire for under 5.00 about 4 years ago? I don’t know when I bought it- but it’s paid for itself. It’s the only tool I use when it comes to cutting cucumber. It’s sharper than a butter knife, but it’s not all that much sharper. I’ve used it to make rippled scalloped potatoes, cut carrots and celery as well. It makes food FUN!!

Another quickie tip- keep veggies in a mason jar to keep them crisp longer.

If your kids come home asking for rippled cucumber – you now know exactly what they are talking about. You’re welcome 😄

What’s your fun tip when it comes to preparing veggies that your picky children love?
