Summer Salad Recipe

This is a cucumber salad that my family traditionally served during the summer; hence it's name.  I like to serve it with hot, spicy foods to provide a cooling element.

Finely Slice Cucumbers
Summer Salad

2 cucumbers or 1 English cucumber
1 small onion
1 tsp. salt
3 Tbsp. white sugar
3 Tbsp. white vinegar
pepper to taste

Thinly slice the cucumbers and onion.  Separate the onion into rings.

Then The Onion
Add the salt, sugar, vinegar and pepper.  I use red pepper flakes when serving Asian food and black pepper for American food.  Mix thoroughly, cover, then allow to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.  It is best if made a day before serving.  Stir it several times while it is marinating.

Ready To Marinate
This is one of dear daughters favorite foods.  It is inexpensive and easy to make.   Frugal with time and money!

God bless,
