A great recipe using cucumbers for all you gardeners out there...

Recommended Posts

I love this recipe! It's really yummy and easy to make as well as healthy, if you cut the sugar a little! Anyway, here it is:


Cucumber Salad


3 large cucumber peeled and thinly sliced

1 c. white vinegar

3/4 c. water

3/4c. sugar (you can cut back on this if you want)

1 tsp. salt

cayenne pepper to taste (I like it hot so I add a lot of cayenne!)

dash of dried parsley flakes

1/8 tsp. black pepper

dash of dried leaf basil


Combine all ingredients except the cucumbers; heat until sugar melts. Pour warm mixture over cucumbers. Store covered in the refrigerator overnight. Serve the next day.



Hope you enjoy it!

Here's my family's favorite cucumber salad


2 large tomatoes

2 large cucumbers or 4 or 5 small

1 large sweet onion

salt and pepper to taste

2 Tbsp sugar

1/4 cup canola or olive oil

1/3 cup white vinegar


Slice one tomato in a bowl, salt and pepper it, slice one large or two small cucumbers on top of this and salt, slice part of the onion on the cucumber, follow with another layer as above, make sure there is plenty of salt and pepper on this as it helps form the dressings, sprinkle sugar over the top, pour oil and then vinegar over all and chill for at least an hour. Stir well and serve.

I'm bursting at the seams with cucumbers. Thanks for the recipe. I'll be trying it soon.


One I like is similar. You cut up tomatoes and cukes. Add vinegar, water, a bit of oil, salt and mint. Refrigerate to let flavors mix. mmmm


Anyone else with a cucumber recipe for those of us who over planted?
