Jay's Favorite Side Dish, Cucumber Salad

A couple nights ago, I was rushing around our kitchen getting supper ready. Then, I remembered that we had a little bit of leftover cucumber salad in the refrigerator, that we needed to clean up on. When I gripped onto the bowl, I didn't realize that its lid wasn't completely sealed. As I lifted it off the shelf, it slipped out of my hand and about 1/2 of it spilled onto the floor:( Yes, I was right. This cucumber salad DID need to get cleaned up! What a mess

Oops! I've had some nasty accidents like that, too. You know the saying, haste makes waste. I love cucumber salad, too! Hope your dinner wasn't ruined.

Yes, with me haste always creates a problem! Jay asked, 'Honey why aren't you eating any cucumber salad?' My half went on the vinyl flooringLOL Our dinner turned out just fine

This is basically sliced cucumber and diced green pepper. For a dressing I mix together mayonnaise, a little bit of milk, light sprinkle of salt, and a tbsp. of sugar. When it's smooth, I gently stir it through the cucumbers.

@kobesbuddy That's much similar to my mom's recipe, only we didn't add the green pepper. Should try that! THanks for the idea

@FayeHazel My mother used sour cream for things like this, we prefer mayonnaise instead.

That's really a mess. We seldom make cucumber salads. What is your recipe for that?

Thinly sliced cucumbers and finely diced green peppers. In another bowl, mayonnaise, a little bit of milk, and 1 tbsp. sugar mixed well, then poured over the cucumbers. It's delicious!

Actually, I slice cucumber thinly in a bowl and add finely diced green pepper. In another bowl, I mix until smooth- mayonnaise, a little bit of milk, and 1 tbsp. sugar. Then, I gently stir it through the cucumbers. It's delicious!

Accidents strikes anytime and anywhere. Atleast you're safe and have no wounds caused by it.

We love it, too! When we sat down to eat Jay asked, 'why aren't you eating any cucumber salad?' I guess I considered the ones that got wasted, my portion! LOL
