    This is also good with some red, ripe tomatoes added in.  Also very good with a raw sour cream/vinegar base.

    We did cucumbers with raw summer squash and a bit of basil. The boys drowned theirs in ranch, and I used a raspberry vinaigrette.

    Great recipe! It reminds me so much of something my Nani Dorothy used to make when my sister and I were kiddos.

    It’s simple and you can add variations of what you’d like to it.

    I keep a container of cucumbers and onions in a vinaigrette in the fridge most all the time.   If I don’t have a green salad with dinner, then I get the cucumbers out.   I add different herbs and sometimes tomatoes.  So, so good.  But I gotta try your recipe next.  Also, adding some zucchini to the mix next time too, per theprincesjewel post.  I make my own ranch, too.
