Jamie Deen has a good food cookbook featuring recipes using great ingredients–from the land, the sea, and the farm. one recipe caught my eye for cucumber salad. i just had to make it. i know this is one of those recipes that i seem to always see at other homes, but i have never made myself. i was excited to finally have an opportunity to try it out.
the salad is very easy to make. slice two cucumbers after peeling every other strip down the side of the cucumber. i like the way that makes the cucumbers look in the salad. place them in a large mixing bowl, with one pint of sliced grape tomatoes. add about 1/3 of a sliced Vidalia sweet onion. season to taste with fresh parsley, salt and pepper.
to make the dressing: mix and whisk together 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and 2 teaspoons honey.
incorporate into the salad and chill before serving to keep the cucumbers very crisp. we really enjoyed the taste of this salad.
