Cool as a Cucumber Salad

Cucumber salad

  • Cucumber
  • Red onion
  • Olive oil
  • Red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Peel and slice cucumber (if using Persian or English cukes, skip the peeling part) and toss into bowl
  2. Chop or thinly slice red onion, and add to same bowl as cukes
  3. Drizzle with olive oil
  4. Drizzle with red wine vinegar
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste
  6. Eat and enjoy!*

    *if you plan to eat this later, prepare cukes and onion first, then season with salt and pepper and cover and refrigerate without the oil and vinegar. When ready to eat, uncover, dump out extra water that has come out of the cucumbers being salted, and add the oil and vinegar. Everything will be a little softer so you may prefer this method. I prefer crunchy so I eat right away.
I love recipes that require no measuring and produce yumminess! If you have any to share, I want to know!
