Cucumber Salad – Sweet and Creamy

There is always one salad I love to eat more than others. I have been loving this salad since I was young. My mom always made a sweet and creamy cucumber salad in the summer for a side during our BBQ’s or family outings.  She usually made 2 bowls, one with onions and one without(for me). I do add the onions now, since I am not as picky of an eater, as I once was.

For me, it has the perfect sweetness and goes great with any meal or all on its own, which is how I often eat this cucumber salad. Both my husband and daughter aren’t really big fans of this, they prefer cucumbers on their own.

With the warmer weather almost here, we will be adding more salads to our meals. Although this isn’t a healthy salad, it is one of my favourite’s to eat. We will be adding more healthy ones to our weekly menu.
