Kansas Cucumber Salad

People from our church have been giving us all kinds of garden veggies, including marvelous English cucumbers! Today I want to share with you my favorite cucumber recipe:

Kansas Cucumber Salad

  • Difficulty: easy
  • Source: treasuringhome.com
  • Print

1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sugar
4 tsp. vinegar
1/2 tsp. dill weed
1/2 tsp. salt
about 5 cucumbers, peeled and thingly sliced
3 green onions, chopped (or about 1/4 cup thinly sliced onion)

In large bowl, combine mayo, sugar, vinegar, dill , and salt. Add cucumbers and onions, toss. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour.

This recipe was given to me by a dear friend, Donna Salatin, many summers ago. Donna is sister-in-law to the well known Joel Salatin of Polyface Farm, which is located not far from where we lived in Virginia. Donna said they would make this recipe for the “Farm Days” when they would host thousands of people at Polyface every summer. Just a little recipe history for you! Enjoy!

  1. It looks very good and reminds me of the cucumber salads we used to enjoy,also. There is nothing as good as our own grown food, right? How I used to enjoy fresh corn on the cob and string beans cooked with a slice of bacon. Yummy Love, Grammy
