John's Cucumber Sweet Onion Salad With Lime Pepper Dressing

READY IN: 24hrs 20mins
Recipe by Baby Kato

This is wonderful on a hot summer night. The flavours are amazing. The longer you marinade the salad the better it is...try to let it sit for 24 hours...You will not be disappointed.

Very nice recipe. I used English cucumbers, left the peel on, scooped out the seeds and sliced them on my mandolin, along with the sweet onions. I also added the zest of the limes, as they are too expensive to just use the juice. Took it to our church pot luck where it was well received. :)
