Cucumber salad

I am blessed with lots of cucumber from my garden that I have to eat it everyday. My simple solution is to make cucumber salad. Instead of using vinegar and sugar, I am using ready made vidalia onion salad dressing. I bought this salad dressing from Costco. The onion and the green pepper came from my garden. The small red onion is so strong that I love it so much and will make sure I grow them again next summer.


  1. Kak Zue..Your thumb must be very green la..Can grow macam macan sayur kat kebun.Mine always die on me after pucuk keluar and transfer to ground.I think that your salad dressing is Vineger dressing right.I love this dressing.I can only find it in BJ's wholesale.

  2. I love cucumber salad. Robert, on the other hand, likes to eat it raw with some salt. Oh yes, I remember my mom used to cook cucumber with prawn - taste good too.

  3. beachlover, over the years I have killed so many plants. But this year the good insects must be around to polinate my cucumber. Last year, I only got 1 cucumber.
    Cath, I never cook my cucumber before. I must try your mom's recipe. What spices should I use?

  4. Kak Zue,
    She just sauteed the garlic, add the shrimps, fried till it turned orange, then add the 1/4 cm sliced cucumber. Salt and pepper to taste and add some water, cook for 5 minutes till the cucumber a little soft.

    If you like it a little spicy, add some cut chillies.

    That's my mom's recepi lah...
