Yogurt and Cucumber Salad Print E-mail

You'll have to ask your parent's permission to use a sharp knife while making this recipe. Young people who aren't allowed to use sharp knives can cut cucumbers with serrated-edged plastic knives.

You'll need:

  • 1 medium-sized cucumber
  • 1/2 cup of yogurt
  • 2 springs of mint ( about 10-12 leaves)
  • Some adult help


  • Potato peeler
  • A knife - a serrated plastic knife is best for little people
  • Cutting board
  • Large Spoon
  • Serving bowl
  • Kitchen shears
    1. Wash the mint and dry it between paper towels.
    2. Peel the cucumber.
    3. Lay the cucumber down on a cutting board and cut it in half the long way. Put the flat sides down on the cutting board and slice the cucumber into thin half-rounds.
    4. Put the cucumber slices into a bowl and pour the yogurt on top.
    5. Use the kitchen shears to cut the mint leaves into small pieces. You can do this right over the bowl.
    6. Mix the yogurt and mint into the cucumber slices, making sure that all the slices are coated.
    7. Chill for 15-20 minutes then serve.
