Mom's Cucumber Salad
Growing up, our mom was all about cooking with fresh fruit and vegetables- usually from our garden in the summer. A lot of those meals were busts...sorry Mom. But I do remember this salad. And quite fondly. She even made it up! Go her and her bad self! You can make it with cucumbers or with tomatoes, or with both. Tonight, I made it with both, took a bite and had a serious walk down memory lane. It was so crazy what those flavors did to me!! It did not disappoint and was just as good now, if not better!
I hope you will enjoy it, I have since I was little. And it's always nice to try a recipe from way back when, that you still like now. :)

1/4 t. white pepper
1 t. basil

2 large peeled cucumbers cut lengthwise in fourths OR

There- you have lots of options!
