My German cucumber salad, aka Gurkensalad, is so delightfully refreshing, especially in the summer. It's a perfect side dish for almost any meal. This version (unlike my Mutti's) has no sour cream or yogurt, so it's perfect for a buffet table or to take along for picnics.
My most used kitchen tool has to be, or rather, was my box grater, especially for salads and potato pancakes.
However, scrapped knuckles are now a thing of the past!
Making cucumber salad or grating potatoes for potato pancakes goes so quickly and safely with my new toy, this T-Fal electric food slicer and grater.
I wish I would have bought it years ago! It would have been so easy for the boys to help in the kitchen!
I was always hesitant for them to do any grating until they were older. With this, they could have helped earlier.
This T-Fal one comes with 5 different cones to grate, shred and slice a variety of fruit, vegetables, cheese, and even nuts! A perfect addition for your kitchen or for a bride-to-be.
