How to Make Cucumber Alphabet Salad


  1. Boil pasta according to package. Rinse with cold water. Peel one cucumber and leave the peel on the other. Slice cucumbers lengthwise into quarters, then slice/dice as thin as possible. Grate carrots. Dice celery stalks and green onions. Place all these veggies in a large bowl and add cold pasta.
  2. In separate bowl combine sugar, mayonnaise, pepper, salt, vinegar, and nutmeg (I usually use a whisk, easier to mix and get clumps out) Pour this mixture over the pasta and veggies and mix together well.
  3. This is best made the day or night before serving as it lets all the flavors combine and the sugar dissolve.

    I get this salad requested every time we have a function to attend. I got this from a close family friend who has now passed and I now do what she did, when going to a party where I serve this I started carrying recipe cards to hand out as there is usually at least 3 or more people who want the recipe. Hope you enjoy it's definitely a keeper.
