From my Kitchen with Love: Cucumber Salad


Spring has SPRUNG and so have spring flavors! 
I have a slight obsession with cucumbers. 
One of my favorite spring/summer treats is cucumber salad.
I wanted to make some for a side dish.

So I started experimenting.
It takes some time in the fridge to make but it is WAY worth it. 
Crisp Cucumber Salad 


1 large cucumber sliced 
1/2 red onion sliced
3 TBS salt
1/2 c of sugar 
1/2 c of white vinegar 

2 TBS Cilantro chopped 
1/2 tbs cracked black pepper


In a bowl coat sliced cucumbers and onions in salt.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. 
After 2 hours rinse off the salt and return veggies to the bowl. 
In a separate bowl combine sugar and vinegar.
Pour vinegar/sugar mixture over the veggies. Toss in cilantro and pepper. 
Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
