Cucumber Salad Recipe

Since a few people asked (and Tricia told me to post this)...

1 cucumber (I like to slice it not-too-thin)
3 tbs mayo
2 tbs milk
1 tbs vinegar
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt

The sugar and salt are optional.

I quadrupled the recipe for Thanksgiving, which fed 17 people with a little left over. Even though I found this on the internet with a quick google search, I'll take all the credit if you try it and like it.

I wonder if this is what it feels like to be The Pioneer Woman? ;)

If you are the Pioneer Woman then you must take step by step pictures! :-)

This is a recipe my husband's grandma has been making for decades. We all love it! And it's economical, too. Well done, Pioneer Man!

This sounds like my grandma's Cucumber salad---only difference. She added elbow pasta---it was a wonderful salad. I haven't made it for years. I should try your recipe---healthier without the pasta. thanks for sharing. Hope you guys have a grand week with Him!

People think I am this incredible cook and the funny thing is I go to allrecipes.com and swipe my recipes! ha. It's awesome because they rate them like Amazon! You can see how many stars a recipe has, how many times it's been prepared and the various "chef's" feedback on changes they would make.

That cucumber salad sounds yummy!

Nope, you gotta have the step by step pics of you making the cucumber salad. Love PDub. If you can't do that then we'll just have to *settle* for pics of Gwyneth. ;_)

Sounds good and easy. But the pioneer women has pictures of each step with a finished product. You're not her yet!!! :-)

We make the same thing but I also add onion slices. If I'm too busy to make the dressing, I sometimes use Marzetti sweet and sour salad dressing which tastes very similar.

That was SO Pioneer Woman!

When do we get to see the pictures of the 10,000 cattle in your back yard?

RaycoTD said...

I make this too, it's a great snack for hungry children after school! And so quick and easy!

Julie said...

Do you think one could use plain yogurt instead of mayo?

You could start a series - "Cooking with Nate" or something like that.

So when do you start scrapbooking?

My husband's mom makes a similar recipe but uses sour cream in place of the mayo. I love it! I will try it with mayo next time and you guys try it with sour cream and we'll see what is better;)
