I can’t believe I’m about to give you this recipe: my precious, beloved Grandma’s cucumber salad recipe.
Today I am sharing another childhood favorite, a summer tradition at my grandparents’ for each and every barbecue – Cucumber Salad! Crisp summer cucumbers and onions thinly sliced, tossed in a simple yummy vinegar, sugar and water dressing.
Cucumber Salad – An old-school classic recipe. Refreshing, cool and crisp, perfect on hot summer days. This is the perfect side dish for any family gathering, picnic, BBQ or potluck – even better, it’s budget friendly!
