Cucumber & Onions Salad Recipe

Lately cucumbers have been really cheap. My husband’s grandma used to make him cucumber and onions and since she has passed he has continued (year after year) asking me to make him some. I had no idea what he was talking about, so finally (after a few years) I gave it a try.

I am addicted!

This simple and inexpensive salad is simply fabulous! I just love the flavor and I finally understand why my husband loves it so much. ;)

This salad is perfect for a labor day gathering.

  4. Stir until combined.
  5. Add in the cucumbers and onions. Place lid on top and shake.
  6. Place in the refrigerator and let it cool for at least a few hours before eating.

Enjoy!

It will stay good in the refrigerator for at least a week.I know it is really simple, but if you love cucumbers, you will love this easy salad. Oh and yes… we have been guilty of eating it directly out of the fridge. ;)

    If you put the cucumbers and onions slightly ed in a bowl and salt them for a few hours first then rinse and drain. It seems to keep them crisp longer.

    I was introduced to this through my husband’s family as well. Adding roughly diced green peppers is also yummy!
