CUCUMBER SALAD

2 cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced

1 pint cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes, halved

1 small green bell pepper, chopped

1/2 cup green onions, chopped

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

2 tbls capers

Dried Italian dressing seasoning to taste

Toss cucumbers, tomatoes, bell pepper and onion in medium bowl.

Whisk together oil, vinegar, capers and Italian seasoning in small bowl.

Pour dressing over salad mixture and toss to coat.

And here's a yummy dressing to drizzle over sliced cucumbers:

TOMATO VINAIGRETTE

This is a great way to use up extra cherry tomatoes.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup whole cherry tomatoes

1 /4 cup red wine or balsamic vinegar

1/8 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp Dijon mustard

3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

Salt and pepper

Directions:

Combine cherry tomatoes, vinegar, garlic and Dijon mustard in a food processor and process until well blended. With food processor is still on, slowly pour in olive oil until mixture is blended. Season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste and transfer to a serving vessel.

*They would also be good diced in just about any cold pasta salad.

*You can also Google for 'Freezer Dills' recipes. ;-)

Did you mean for a quick salad or for preserving them? I peel and slice them then add some ranch dressing and let them sit for awhile. That is how we like them.

Our local Oriental restaurant makes cucumber Kim-Chee, very delicious! There are several recipes online, just pick whichever one is easiest.

Cucumbers and Onions

1 large cucumber; peeled, sliced

1 small onion; thin sliced, separated in rings

1/4 C. vinegar

2 Tbsp. sugar

Stir the vinegar and sugar together until sugar is dissolved.

Add the cucumbers and onions. (You may have to double or triple the vinegar and sugar in order for the liquid to cover the cukes and onions.) Cover and refrigerate a couple of hours before serving.

1/3 c. vinegar

3 cukes, sliced

3 tomatoes chopped, or several cherry tomatoes cut in half

1 onion diced

Dash of garlic powder

Marinate at least 1 hour before serving.

You can slice & peel them and add onions, then pour a bottle of Itailian dressing over them and let set for several hours.
