Simple Cucumber Salad

I know this was not on the weekly menu, but my garden is overflowing with cucumbers!!  I had to make a quick side dish for lunch one day and decided on this.  This simple salad, using only 4 ingredients, was something I grew up with.  If I hadn't, I might be unsure about the combination of ingredients, but trust me, it's great!  It is crisp and clean and compliments most meals.  If you want a super easy use for your cucumbers, give this a try.  

1 large cucumber, peeled, quartered, and sliced
3 Tbsp sugar
5 Tbsp white vinegar
toasted sesame seeds, to taste


  1. Combine all the ingredients into a medium sized bowl.  Mix well.
  2. It is best if you allow it to sit in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes before serving to allow the flavors to combine.
