Cucumber Salad

If you're growing a garden this year, you probably have an abundance of cucumbers. Here's a slightly different recipe to try. Of course, you could always take the easy route and use buttermilk-ranch dressing instead!
Cucumber Salad
3 cucumbers, peeled
1 quart buttermilk
1/2 pint sour cream
3 green onions
salt & pepper to taste
Cut cucumbers in half and slice very thin into a bowl. Sprinkle with salt, stirring once or twice. Refrigerate 1/2 hour. Drain, add buttermilk, sour cream and chopped onions. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and refrigerate several hours or over night.

You know, I have seen a similar recipe, kept it through the years, never made it. I see yours and am reminded how good I think this must be. With cucumbers coming into season soon, then I know I must make this! This must be soothing and cooling to eat.

So simple and yet so flavorful and FRESH! Lots of cukes in the garden this year and I'll be making this with some of them! Thank you!
