Who doesn't love a good salad!

Cucumbers + Fresh Dill + Red Onion = My latest obsession!!!

Here is something I just realized....

Not only are all my close friends superclaifragilistic! They are ALL amazing cooks!! I mean how does this happen and how did I get so lucky!

So my darling universe thank you for blessing me with these people and all of their goodness.

On Memorial Day I headed over to Keith and Jeanie's. 2 of my most fav peeps. I could go on and on why I just adore them but I'm sure you get the jist of things!
Jeanie made lots of great things to eat while Keith manned the grill.

BUTTTT this cucumber salad she made was so good. Good like if someone tried to take yours off your plate there may be some sort of altercation!

It's simple and fresh and perfect for a summertime gathering or if you want to make a huge bowl and eat the entire thing yourself. I mean this didn't happen but it could ahaha!

Enjoy and Keep on Making Stuff!!

Here it is for your dining pleasure.....

Cucumber Dill Salad
4lbs. - cucumbers peeled and sliced thin
1 - medium to large red onion peeled and sliced thin
1/2 cup - fresh dill chopped
1 cup - mayonnaise ( I used Hellman's light)
1 cup - sour cream (I used light sour cream)
1 tsp. - garlic powder
1 tsp. - celery salt (I didn't have any so I left it out and it was just fine)
1 tbsp. - sugar
2 tbsp. - cider vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste

I mixed all the dry in a small bowl and all the wet in another combined then added the veggies.

I recommend putting this in the fridge for a bit to chill. Although it was good right after I made it, chilling it does make it taste better for some reason. I guess it gives everything a chance to hold hands and say hello.

I have been eating this pretty much daily since I made it. Soon the giant bowl I made will be empty and I will obsess over the next tasty salad recipe I find. It's what I do! HEHE!
