    I always love my Moms Cumcumber Onion salad made with mayo and vinegar. I decided to add a little twist....that and my wife keeps reminding me about not eating that much mayo!!

    Here it is.

    1 Cumcumber Sliced
    2 good sized Sweet onion sliced
    (I tried to keep equal parts onion and cucumber)
    1 good pinch of Sweet Basil
    Coat with Balsamic Vinegarette Dressing.

    I had a pretty big bowl of this made and was really looking forward to putting some on a sandwich the next day....low and behold the kids killed it off on me!
    They said it was even better the next day! Imagine that....they don't like onions!

    I thought it would be really good to add some black olives to it but they put the stop on that one.

    We do a version that we call Polish Cucumbers

    Cukes
    Onions
    sprinkle of dill
    Pinch of salt
    Sour cream or plain yogurt
    splash of vingar and maybe equal water if too strong
    Pinch of sugar if you want
    basically anything else if you want

    the bad thing is that it doesn't keep well, I mean it should rest overnight or at least a few hours, but it just never seems to make it that long.
