Cucumber and Onion Salad

This is the second cucumber recipe I'm writing, though I'm actually not that fond of the cucumber! This salad works well on its own, mixed into lettuce, or in a wrap. Just don't leave it too long or it will get very wet.


1 large (English) or two small (Kirby) cucumbers

½ a large or one small onion

Mayonnaise, house made or organic


Cheese – 2 oz (sharp cheddar is best)


If using a cucumber variety other than English, remove the seeds. Chop the cucumber and the onion. Dice the cheese. All three (cucumber, onion, cheese) should be about the same size.


Add a dollop of mayonnaise, about 2 tablespoons. Add a few grinds of pepper to taste.


This salad will last 1-2 days. If you're making it for a party, best to add the mayonnaise an hour before serving to give the flavors time to blend but keep it from turning into soup.
