This one is a little bit different in the sense that I did make the original recipe (top pin link), but decided I didn’t like it and it was missing something. After a phone call to my Mom, I received the second recipe link in an email from her as she said it was much closer to what she and my Grandma used to make. So much better!

Cucumber Onion Salad (Mixed Version)

3 cucumbers, cut into 1/4″ – 1/2″ pieces on the diagonal
1 red onion, peeled and thinly sliced
Sour cream
4 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
3 TBSP apple cider vinegar
1 tsp celery salt
1 tsp favorite mustard
3 garlic cloves, finely minced
Pepper to taste
Dash of salt

1. In a small bowl, combine sour cream, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, sugar, celery salt, mustard, garlic, pepper, and salt to create a dressing.
2. In a larger bowl, mix cucumbers and onion.
3. Pour the dressing over the cucumber and onion mixture, tossing to coat.
4. Chill for a few hours to allow the flavors to meld. Mix directly before serving.
