Cucumber and Onion Salad

Roz Wenrich


This is a side dish that was first made by my great grandmother, handed down through the generations and now made by me, sometimes with my own granddaughter. The onions get very mellow over the days when you wait for this salad to be ready. A great side dish also if you are on a diet and it can be 0 points made with low/no calorie sweetener.
