Southern Cucumber Salad

Southern cucumber saladThis Southern cucumber salad recipe comes straight from Grandma. So simple and refreshing, you’ll crave it all summer long. This is one of my go-to side dishes for picnics and potlucks.

The cukes get even better after they marinate in the fridge, so feel free to make it ahead of time.

  1. This is super tasty! I love the addition of sesame seeds to this classic recipe…delicious:). I used purple onion because that’s what I had on hand and included the optional honey.

    • Glad you liked it! Did the purple onion change the color, I wonder? I’m thinking that could be really pretty.

      • The purple onion did make the salad pretty, but the purple color didn’t “bleed” into the dressing if that’s what you mean. I prefer the slightly sweeter taste of purple onion for fresh eating, so I always have some on hand for salads and burgers:)
