This super easy cucumber salad recipe is very good and seasonally budget friendly. The dressing is made from things most cooks keep on hand.

1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 cups cucumbers, sliced

Wash the cucumbers and treat the skin the way you like best. You can remove the peel completely. Or take a decorative approach by removing long lengths of the peel with a sharp knife or vegetable peeler. Or drag the tines of a fork the length of the cucumber. When sliced, these treatments will render different effects.

In a bowl that will accommodate all of the cucumbers, whisk together the mayonnaise, sugar, vinegar and salt. Add the cucumbers and stir to coat.

Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Alternately, you can create the components of this salad a day ahead. Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a bowl and seal tightly. Slice the cucumbers and place in a separate lidded container. Cover the top of the cucumbers with a damp paper towel; cover tightly. Store dressing and cucumbers in the refrigerator. Two hours before serving combine dressing and cucumbers; cover and return to the refrigerator and allow to marinate.

Note: this salad should be eaten within 24 hours. If kept longer, the cucumbers become soft and loose the wonderful contrast between the cucumbers and dressing.

Yield: 6 – 8 servings.
