Cucumbers & Tajin at Juan Cabrillo

I think my students at Juan Cabrillo have a new favorite snack: Cucumber and tajin! It’s too bad our cucumbers are nearly finished but the kids seem eager to find other things to sprinkle with the spicy and tangy seasoning. Swiss chard, nasturtium leaves, dinosaur kale and tomatoes. I’m thrilled that these students are so eager to try new things! As a famous nanny once said, “A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.” Well, in this case, a sprinkle of tajin helps the vegetables go down!
