summer cucumber salad

This salad is an all-time favorite of mine.  Fresh cucumbers, red onion, half and half and vinegar.  yum.  It’s such a great side dish for a grilled meat and especially refreshing on a hot, summer day.  No real recipe – just a little of this and a little of that.

English cucumber, peeled and sliced thin

1/4 to 1/2 red onion, sliced into thin wedges

Combine these in a bowl with a generous sprinkling of sea salt.  Let sit on the counter or in the fridge for an hour or so.  Can rinse and drain or leave salt and add the rest of the ingredients below.

half and half, to taste

vinegar, to taste

seasonings, to taste (paprika, garlic powder, black pepper, salt)

Mix all ingredients and let sit a couple of hours in refrigerator before eating.  Enjoy.
