Salad Days!! Cucumber Slaw

While we were up north my sister Linda made one of our family favorites, cucumber slaw, and since it is too hot to cook I repeated it this week.  Fact is when it is so hot we eat lots of salads, sandwiches, and seasonal fruit deserts.  I have barely had the stove on till today.

To make this refreshing salad you will need:

4-6 good sized cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced
1 sweet onion sliced thin
1/3-1/2 C. sugar
1/3-1/2 C. vinegar
3-4 C. cold water
salt and pepper to taste
It is best to make this a day ahead or the night before and to allow it to marinade in a covered dish in the refrigerator.  The whole recipe is to taste so dissolve the sugar, water, and vinegar in a large measuring cup or bowl and add salt and pepper.  We like it on the sweet side but others like it to have a bit of a bite.  Blend to you taste and pour over the cucumbers.
