Sweet Cucumber and Red Onion Salad

Total Time

Everyone who tastes this asks for the recipe. It is super easy to put together and just gets better after sitting in the fridge. I now make it with 1/2 fat mayo and it is just as good. You will love it, I promise!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel down the length of the cucumber leaving part of the skin on, so that it looks like it is striped.
  2. Chop cucumber into whatever size cubes you like.
  3. Chop red onion a little smalled than cucumber.
  4. Mix sauce ingredients together. Salt and pepper to taste. Pour over cucumber and onion. Give it a good stir.
  5. Refrigerate for 2 hours (if you can wait that long).

This is good. I liked it much better the second day!! I found it made too much sauce also. I might make it again.

I loved how simple this was to make & even better? My family liked it too! I didn't expect them to do more than try it but in the end everyone really enjoyed these fresh, crisp flavors. I scaled down the sauce a little bit, to 3/4 cup mayo & about 1/3 cup of sugar. I forgot to scale down the vinegar, so it's a little soupy, but delish anyway! Thanks for sharing, Baknpies!
