Cucumber Salad

This ranks up there as one of my favorite summer side dishes!  It takes me back...waaaaay back.  My mom would make this every summer while I was growing up.  I ask her for the recipe every single year, but I was never able to recreate it quite like hers.  Until this year.  This year it came out almost as good as hers ;)

This salad is so simple, too.  Very few ingredients and, if the thought of just mayo and vinegar as a dressing makes you turn your head, I'm asking you to just give it a chance.  I'm not the biggest fan of mayo, but it's amazing how just a little bit of vinegar added to it totally transforms it into something different.

Of course this could be made anytime of the year, but it truly tastes the best with fresh picked cucumbers.  If you have fresh onions and tomatoes (I don't add tomatoes in mine, but some do) - even better!  We have cucumbers coming out of our ears this year, so you better believe I'll be making this salad often :)

1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp kosher salt

Directions:

1.  In a large bowl, whisk together the mayo with two tbsp vinegar, salt, and pepper.  Add the cucumbers, onions, and tomatoes and stir to coat.  Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour.  Serve and Enjoy!
