Recipe by jennifertess

A refreshing cucumber salad with a sweet dressing that has a little kick! This recipe came from my mom and it has been enjoyed by my family for over 20 years. Everytime I make this I eat half of it before I get it to the table because I keep "tasting" it. My kids love this one too and also can't keep their fingers out of it. ENJOY!

What a terrific combination of flavors of this summer time treat. I used 2 field cucumbers, (6 inches approx.) that were yanked from the brimming garden early this morning. I was so excited, I brought them right back to the icebox, (after slicing on the mandoline thinly) and set out to make the marinade. I loved the use of white pepper, and used fresh dill weed. The green onion was great here, and by lunchtime, today - none was left. I put in a bowl that was in the fridge already icy cold, so this was like a cold delightful treat, on a hot, hot day. Made for *Theirs, Yours, Mine* August 2009
