Creamy Cucumber Salad

Since we’ve had lots of cucumbers in our baskets over the last few weeks, Cody’s been craving the cucumber & cream salad he had growing up.  We couldn’t find the exact recipe in his family cookbook, but this one seemed close enough.  I added extra salt & pepper to my portion (cucumbersare pretty boring), but Cody definitely liked the salad.

  • Slice the cucumbers & onion.  Place in large bowl and add vinegar, salt & pepper.
