July 12, 2012 § Leave a comment
I love love love summer, because that means cucumbers! How many out there are growing cucumbers this year? I have one plant, and that usually means more cucumbers than I can eat..but I sure give it a good try. Hence a quick recipe to use up those soon to be abundant fresh crisp cukes.
1 cucumber, peeled if desired, and cut into slices
1 walla walla onion, cut into chunks
1/4 cup salad dressing type mayo
1/4 cup ranch dressing
1/4 cup lemon juice (bottled is fine)
1 tablespoon sugar
black pepper to taste
Put cucumber slices and onion chunks in a medium sized bowl. Cover with ice water and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Let soak for 30 minutes; drain well.
Meanwhile mix together the salad dressing mayo, ranch dressing, lemon juice, sugar and black pepper.
Put drained cucumbers and onions in a bowl, pour dressing over, and mix well.
Chill for one hour in the fridge, and serve.
