"One of my favorite recipes for a tasty salad. I am sure you could add different veggies. I am actually thinking of putting some radishes in it next time I make it. It has a nice tangy taste and it pickles the onions and cucumbers."

Step 1

Slice the cucumbers and onion wafer thin. (I use a mandolin slicer). Place them in a large bowl that has a cover. Break up the onion slices. You can leave the onions in rings. Red onion makes for a prettier salad.

Step 2

Add the rest of ingredients and mix up. I just use my hands to combine it all. Cover and place in refrigerator for atleast an hour.

Loved this cucumber and onion salad. A great combination and balance of flavors making for one tantalizing and zesty salad that delights both the eye and dazzles the taste buds. Now why have I not thought to adding pepper flakes to a cucumber salad! Has already seen to a repeat and has been added to my Family Favorites Cookbook. Looking forward to serving this at our gatherings and potlucks.
