Easy Cucumber Salad

Easy cucumber salad is something I grew up eating.  This salad was on my grandmother’s table as well as my mother’s.  They used to make it with Sweet & Low, but I’ve adjusted the recipe to use a couple of packets of Truvia.

I have many good memories of backyard picnics with cucumber salad on the table. Of course there were other staples.  There were pierogies (I really need to post that recipe at some point), traditional nut roll, and kielbasa.  Kielbasa on the grill.  Now there’s a treat – especially with this cucumber salad on the side!
