Everyone loves an abundance of cucumbers in their summer gardens, and this is my FAVORITE way to enjoy them! My grandma used to make this all the time, and I have fond memories of watching her whip it up in her kitchen. The hardest part is waiting for it to chill in the fridge! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Peel and halve the cucumber, then thinly slice. My yield was 11.3 oz of trimmed weight. Place into a bowl along with the peeled and thinly sliced banana shallot (you can also use a small, sweet onion).
