I was missing my mom a lot today. So I made her cucumber salad to accompany dinner tonight. She always had cucumber salad in the summertime. It's been hot and we've been harvesting plenty of cucumbers each morning.
::Mom's Cucumber Salad::
3 medium cucumbers (or several small ones)
1 small sweet onion, sliced thin and separated into rings
1 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
Dissolve sugar in water and vinegar. Pour over cucumbers and onion slices. Refrigerate for a couple of hours until it tastes yummy.
Now go call your mom and tell her you love her. (Or say a prayer for her if you can't call her.) Happy Summertime!
