Oh so easy Favorite Cucumber Salad. Perfect choice to add to barbecue menu.
It is finally Summer in Chicago and if you’re like me you’re looking for an easy and refreshing, almost rote summer dish. Favorite Cucumber Salad is what you need. It is so very easy, you’ll just need fresh cucumbers, onions, vinegar and seasonings. I usually slice the onions and cukes by hand, but if your food processor is on the counter and ready—you’ll have your salad ready to chill in about ten minutes!
