- Cucumbers (duh)
- Red onions
- Red wine vinegar (or whatever kind you prefer/have on hand)
- Dijon mustard (regular yellow mustard works too)
- Salt & pepper
Get the bowl your going to mix and store the salad in preferably something with a lid (doing all the mixing and storing in one bowl = less dishes!). Put the dijon mustard, red wine vinegar, salt & pepper in the bowl and mix it up - I think the recipe says to whisk it together, I don't think we own a whisk so I just use a fork. Slice the cucumber and onion, put them in the container and put the lid on it. Then shake it up.
We like it best if you make it the night before and shake it up a few times while it's marinating.
The Verdict: Vegetables aren't all that bad if you douse them in something. You could change this up by adding tomatoes or feta too. Cost-wise, the only thing that could make this summer salad even less expensive is if you grown your own vegetables or have a great friend like Bekah who will give you some of theirs. I actually planted my own cucumbers specifically for this recipe but it only sprouted only 1 little guy (see below), and something ate it about 2 weeks after I took this picture!
In other news, my tomato plants are doing great and I'll hopefully be using them in some way soon!
