Cucumber and Onion Salad-a summer favorite, the perfect complement to any meal from sandwiches to steak.
I have to tell you. This salad is our very favorite salad of all time.
Don’t get me wrong, I like a good side salad, everyone gets to choose their own dressing.
Or the salad that’s really a meal with meat like chicken or leftover steak. Yup, I kinda love those salads for lunch.
Then you have the girly salads. You know the ones. It looks like a lot of food but it’s really just some fluffed up leafs of different greens with a nut or 2, maybe a few berries, and a vinaigrette dressing. But when you’re all done, you’re still starving!
This salad, this Cucumber and Onion Salad, is simple. Just 2 vegetables and a few items you’ll have in the pantry. Toss it all together and waala! You’ve got a great side item that pairs well with a sandwich, burgers, steak, chicken, pasta, pretty much anything!
And this salad isn’t picky. Just plain old cucumber, and any onion although I do prefer a Vidalia Onion when they’re in season. Nothing fancy about it. Slicing them both thin is the key.
