A friend of mine from Houston Texas introduced me to the pleasures of cucumber salad. She was obsessed with cucumbers and red onions in vinegar. We ate bowl fulls to curb our hunger.
I am the only one in the house who will eat this type of stuff. Stephen is anti condiments especially anything that closely resembles mayonnaise. The kids will only eat salad with Ranch dressing but they will eat cucumbers. I halved the recipe mixing their half with ranch and my half with yogurt rather than sour cream. I wish my friend were here to share a bowl.
