Cucumber and Peach Salad

 

Cucumber and Peach Salad

This is a fresh, summery salad: the cucumber is crunchy and the peach is juicy, and they look so pretty together. If you want to make something more like a salsa to scoop up with chips, just cut everything into smaller pieces. When Kids Advisory Board member Te’Lario Watkins II tested this for us, he said, “It turned out great!”
