Cucumber Salad

I love salads. Sometimes a simple salad really hits the spot and the best part of making the salad does not take a lot of time and effort. Cucumbers are a favorite around my house. A friend gave this recipe a few years ago and with some tweaking the recipe is perfect. We love the freshness, the color and simplicity of the recipe.

Cucumber Salad, created 6/13/2010

2 Green Onions washed and sliced or 1 small red onion sliced very thin and halved
¼ cup of snipped fresh chives
2 tablespoons fresh dill or dried
3 tablespoons of Italian White Vinegar or Apple Cider Vinegar
1-tablespoon sugar or Steevia
1 large English Cumber sliced or 2 regular cucumbers
Salt and pepper to taste

Wash and slice the cucumbers. I like to slice the cucumbers about 1/8” thick. Place the sliced cucumbers in a colander and sprinkle kosher salt on them. Put the colander in the sink and put a heavy plate on top of the cucumbers to allow the excess water to drain out. Leave for about 20 minutes. Rinse the cucumbers and pat dry.

Place the sliced cucumbers in a pretty bowl and add the snipped chives, the sliced onions, dill. In a small bowl whisk the vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper till the sugar is dissolved. Pour over the cucumber salad and toss well. Put the salad in the refrigerator for about 1 hour until thoroughly chilled. Serve with main meal. Enjoy!
