Here's one of my favorites......


This is a salad I've been making for years and thought I'd share it with you guys. It's my own version of cucumber onion salad. It has a few other things that make it rather unique. My family, friends and neighbors absolutely love this stuff. A couple weeks ago I make a gallon of it and it lasted 2 days with only me, my wife and 2 of my daughters. I mix the sauce pretty much to taste, and amt. of sauce I eyeball according to how much veggies I have to coat. The addition of apples and grapes gives a surprisingly good sweet contrast to the onions and vinegar. Also de-seed and core the cucumbers and tomatoes so it doesn't turn into soup. You will absolutely love this salad, tastes even better the next day. A great way to use up that end of season harvest this time of year
Use all or any combination of the following...
cucumbers
onions
tomatoes
green tomatoes
green peppers
sliced apples
grapes
Add a mixture of equal parts, reg. ranch dressing, blue cheese dressing and Hellman's mayo
to that add to taste:
rice vinegar
salt
fresh grnd. blk. pepper
granulated garlic
dill weed
sugar or sugar substitute
Mix all sauce and dry ingredients together and add to veggie/fruit mix and let sit a couple hrs, or best overnite.
Enjoy
Jon
