Slice up cucumbers and onions.
Make a dressing of Miracle Whip thinned with a little milk.
Or you could use 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 2 Tbls. sugar, 1 Tbls. vinegar, and 1/4 Cup milk.
This salad also tastes great with the addition of cut up tomatoes.
Just try just putting the cukes and onions in the pickle juice when you finish the last pickle. Leave it to "marinate' in the refrigerator about 5 days. Yummy
This is a Salad. The way I love them is to slice the Cucumbers and Onions I like them in thin slices or to ones liking and Sprinkle salt on them then pour buttermilk on them. I let it set awhile till they are cold in the fridge.
P.S. If you don't like buttermilk you can use a ranch dressing that is mild.
