Fresh Lemonade Cucumber Salad

I've been waiting for garden cucumbers to try this Fresh Lemonade Cucumber Salad that's been floating around in my head for a while. The idea was to use fresh lemon juice instead of vinegar and purposely ~sweeten~ it up with sugar, you know, like lemonade:@) You could use a sugar substitute for a low carb version if desired. This is one of those side salads that's best served around 2 hours after it's mixed, it doesn't take long for the lemon to create a pickled effect. Don't hesitate to give this a try if you have an extra cucumber and would like to make something different!

Fresh Lemonade Cucumber Salad
One large cucumber, sliced very thin-I used a couple smaller ones
a few thin slices of onion, chopped-as much as you'd like, you know your crowd:@)
zest of half a lemon
juice of whole lemon
1 Tblsp sugar
1/2 tsp lemon pepper seasoning (or S&P to taste)
~Mix well, let mingle in fridge for about 2 hours.

  1. Mmmmm....I always have cukes in the fridge and this salad would make a lovely side dish! Bill still isn't on board with cucumbers, but I'm happy to keep this all to myself :)
