Cucumber Salad

on July 28, 2011

IT IS I, THE HUBBY! I was informed that I had to write something about this recipe as I was the intrepid googler that located the original version of this masterpiece.  Upon completing  a very through ( five second) search of the interwebs in all it’s cloud like glory I located this recipe at the behest of my wife. It turned out to be pretty good it was also my first chance to use a mandolin. I hope it is my last chance to use the mandolin as well, because I lost several large chunks of my knuckles. The salad turned out pretty great – my organic contribution not withstanding. It has a light fresh taste that i feel would compliment most picnics nicely. Next time we are going to be tweaking it a bit updates to follow. OK I love you buh bye!

Cucumber Salad



4 cucumbers, thinly sliced
1 small onion, thinly sliced
2 firm tomatoes, seeded and cut into chunks
1 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp sugar *
2 Splenda *
2 Tbsp Dried Dill
Salt to Taste

Please cucumbers, and onion in a large bowl.

Bring water, vinegar and sugar to a boil.   Pour over cucumber and onion mixture.  Toss in dill, tomatoes and salt.

Let cool, enjoy!

*You can use more regular sugar, or use all Splenda.  We like to use a combination of the two.
