Cucumbers and Onions

Yesterday we talked about great side dishes... Another one of my favorites for the summer is Cucumbers and Onions. 
It is sooooo easy and soooooo good!!
I hope you enjoy! 
Take and slice 4 cucumbers, you can peel them too, but I didn’t!
Put them in a bowl and toss them with 1 tsp salt to bring out the juice.
Let that mixture sit 15 minutes.
Now drain the juice.
Add 1 onion and several hot peppers
1 Tablespoon full of Vinegar
3 Tablespoons full of Sugar and mix everything well.
Very good… it is a little sweet and a little salty…


  1. Hello Chas, Been busy and have not stopped by this past week. Great new background. I have never made cucmber salad. Might have to try it now. God's Blessings to you on your side of the mountain. Cynthia

  2. OK, THAT'S IT. I'm coming to your house. I LOVE onions and cucumbers. I'll bring chocolate chip oatmeal cake.

  3. My mouth is WATERING!!! I went grocery shopping tonight and have all the ingredients so I'll try it. Sounds like something my Grandma made when I was younger.

    May I ask, why IS the liquid drawn out of the cucs first? Just curious....

    Hi Mrs. Mo!

  4. the recipe for the cake is on my blog....
