On Cucumber Salad:

Yesterday the first cucumbers came in from the garden. Of course I had to pig out on them.

I make an apple vinaigrette and let it marinade in the fridge if I can leave it alone long enough.

1 cup apple juice
1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon onion juice or onion powder
Salt and pepper to taste.

For a large bowl or three or more cucumbers I double the vinaigrette. I also use it for salad dressing some times too.

I wash, peel and thinly slice the cucumbers. Toss them in the vinaigrette.

For the next couple of days I’ll add fresh cucumber slices to the vinaigrette in the bowl as I use up the cucumbers in the fridge. I don’t waste a drop.
