Cool As A Cucumber

Cucumber Salad

I love this time of year for the bounty in the garden!

It's so easy to make fresh delicious meals with vegetables from the garden. This is an old fashion recipe that's still a favorite at my house.

4 medium cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced
1 teaspoon salt
half of a red onion, thinly sliced
1/3 cup white vinegar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon dill weed
1/4 teaspoon pepper

1. Place sliced cucumbers in a large bowl and toss with salt. The salt will remove excess moisture from the cucmbers.

2. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, then drain excess liquid. Add sliced onions to cucumbers in bowl.

3. Whisk together remaining ingredients to make the dressing. Pour over the cucumber and onion mixture. Toss well and refrigerate two hours before serving.

Serves 6

Sounds good enough to stumble, which I did.
