    Todd, this isn't really a salad but its close. It is our favorite dish in the summer when the tomatoes are ripe. -RP

    Never wrote it down but I make a cucumber and onion salad like this--
    Partially remove green skin from cukes, leaving some green for looks and crunch.
    Slice Vidalia onions about 1/4" thick and quarter the slices. Ratio is about 3 cukes to 1 large onion.
    Place both in bowl and place in fridge.
    Once they cool there will be lots of juice from the cukes. Add white vinager, start with 1/4 cup for 4 cukes. Mix and add turbinado sugar little at a time and place back in fridge for 1/2 hour. Add more vinager/turbinado to taste. Have also added dill to this when I had fresh in the garden. Serve cold.

    Moms recipe
    Use a little sugar, olive oil, red wine vinegar and fresh basil and/or oregano over fresh cucumbers,onions,tomatoes,summer vegs.
    Not really any measurements as it depends on no of vegs.
    Toss vegs and chill for 20 mins in frig.
    The longer you allow to marinate the better the taste.
    At least that's the way my mom taught us.

    Not really a salad but is very good and easy to make.
    Peel cukes and run a fork down the length of the cuke to score it.Slice and put into a collander and sprinkle with kosher salt and let it sweat for a couple of hours in the fridge.Drain off water and top with sour cream and a little salt.Yummy.

    If dieting or diabetic: Splenda has good recipes for cucumber salad. If the link doesn't work just go to Splenda website.
    The recipe we like is Danish Cucumber Salad.

    Todd: You have to try this one. We cut it out of the Market Bulletin years ago and loved it. We have made it on many occasions for ourselves, and have also brought it to functions where others have tried it and always ask for the recipe. (The Market Bulletin is published by Ga. Dept of Agriculture. Used to be free, haven't been on the mailing list in years though. Not sure if it is even still available. Always had good recipes in it.) Here goes:

    Summer Salad

    3 Cups Cooked Macaroni
    3 Cucumbers
    1 Green Bell Pepper, Large, Chopped
    1 Onion, Small, Sliced
    3 Tomatoes, Chopped
    ½ Cup Mayonnaise
    ¼ Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
    Salt and pepper

    Combine first 5 ingredients. Combine mayonnaise and cider vinegar. Toss with vegetables and macaroni. Salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate before serving.

  • When the vidalia's start coming in we put a gallon pickle jar in the fridge full of chunks of vidalia's, cukes, green tomatoe, squash, or whatever is fresh for the day. We kinda sorta add to it as we eat it. As for the liquid, we use a couple of bottles of Hendrickson's salad dressing. It's good eats!

    Here's what the dressing looks like...

    We enjoy cucumber salad as follows: sliced cucumber, salt, pepper, and sour cream. It is a very good side dish for just about everything.
