I am loving all of the fresh produce right now!
I am especially enjoying the cucumbers I am finding at our local store. Girls, these are not just for baggy eyes…although, after the 3 week vacation I just had I may need some! I am looking rather ragged after all the fun and now, cleaning and unpacking that is ahead of me.
Besides looking a bit ragged I am also extremely short on time these days. With the weather being hot I depend on quick recipes that come together in minutes and don’t require any cooking. This cucumber and onion salad is one of our favorites!
Cucumber and Onion Salad
- 1 cucumber
- 1/2 onion, sliced
- 2 tblsp canola oil
- 2 tblsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp granulated sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
Clean and peel the cucumber. You don’t have to peel it but I like to take off some of the skin. Slice the cucumber in half and slice into 1/4″ pieces. Place in a medium bowl. Slice the onion in half and slice as thinly or thick as you like. Mix with the cucumber. In a small bowl whisk the rest of the ingredients and toss with the cucumbers and onions.
