Granny’s Cucumber Salad
Christmas leftovers: Cucumber Salad over green beans,
When I was a child, my paternal grandmother made Cucumber Salad to serve over green beans. It is a very simple dish, but really enhances green beans. My grandmother’s version was very potent, with undiluted vinegar. I add water to my version, and even my dad prefers my modification.
4 medium-sized pickling cucumbers
½ cup Duke’s mayonnaise
1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup water
1 tsp salt
1. Blend mayo, vinegar, and water until smooth.
2. Peel and dice cucumbers and toss with salt.
3. Pour mayo mixture over cucumbers.
4. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
Cook up a big batch of green beans with cubed potatoes. Spoon a liberal portion of Cucumber Salad with juice, over green beans and enjoy!
