God......Dad would drink the beer and be worse than ever.
This is the recipe for my favorite summer salad. We all love it. Mom made it with vegetables from the huge garden we had every summer.
MOM’S FAMOUS TOMATO, CUCUMBER, AND ONION SALAD
2 MEDIUM SLICED ONIONS [I like Vidalia]
1 PEELED AND SLICED CUCUMBER
3 SLICED TOMATOES
1 TSP. SALT
BLACK PEPPER TO TASTE
1/4 CUP VINEGAR OR TO TASTE
1/8 CUP SUGAR OR TO TASTE
2 CUPS WATER.
PUT IN BOWL 2 MEDIUM SLICED ONIONS, 2 PEELED AND SLICED CUCUMBERS, 3 SLICED TOMATOES AND MIX TOGETHER. IN BLENDER ADD 1 TSP. SALT, BLACK PEPPER TO TASTE, 1/4 CUP VINEGAR, 1/8 CUP SUGAR, AND 2 CUPS WATER. TASTE AND CORRECT FOR SEASONINGS, SWEET, AND SOUR. THIS SHOULD HAVE A MILD BITE AND A LITTLE SWEETNESS. POUR OVER SALAD TO COVER. REFRIGERATE OVER NIGHT. SERVES 6 TO 8
VARIATION: SUBSTITUTE THE CUCUMBERS AND TOMATOES WITH 4 OR 5 COOKED, PEELED, AND SLICED BEETS.
