Summer is almost over, and pumpkin spice is beating down the door. But you can still enjoy the yummy dishes of summer, I mean it is still over 100 degrees out where I live. This is by far the best cucumber salad I have ever made.

Staying Healthy While Staying Home

I decided to start eating healthy, mainly to get rid of the “Covid 20 lbs” I’ve gained doing the stay at home thing. Don’t get me wrong, I am loving staying home and trying new recipes, and my family is loving eating them. But wow, I am definitely the heaviest I have ever been.

This Isn’t Grandma’s Salad

More recipes will be coming soon, but I had to share this amazing cucumber salad with you. My grandma use to make something similar, and OH MY GOSH was it good. But there are no onions in this one. Heck there are no onions ever in my house. I may sneak in a little onion powder here and there, but my husband thinks I am trying to kill him if he even smells onion.
