Cucumber salad and sandwich

I love cucumbers, they are healthy and delicious.  I thought I might share 2 of my favorite recipes that you might be able to use for your Mother's day celebration.  


Cucumber Salad
4 cucumbers, thinly sliced
1 small white onion                                       
1 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon dill or to taste


Add onions and cucumbers in a bowl
Heat vinegar, water and white sugar in saucepan to boil. 
Pour over cucumbers and onions, refrigerate until cool, about 1 hour add dill


*Another great quick and easy cucumber salad is cut the onion and cucumbers, and add your favorite Italian dressing, let cool, simple and easy and super yummy! 


Cucumber Sandwiches
1 package cream cheese softened
3 tablespoons sour cream
1 (.7) package dry Italian-style salad dressing 
1 loaf bread (I like white without crust, but rye is also good)
2 cucumbers cleaned, not peeled and sliced


Combine cream cheese, sour cream and dressing mix together.  Spread on bread and top with cucumbers.


I hope you enjoy and have a Tasty Tuesday!
