When I was in Nashville or my dad's Hall of Fame Induction we went to this restaurant called Monell's. It's a family style restaurant and it is so delicious! One of the side dishes they had was a simple cucumber onion salad and it was so refreshing and light! I decided to try and replicate and while I probably will never be able to replicate it I'm going to try and come close. I scoured the internet looking for a recipe that would bring out the similar flavors I remember and this is what I came up with. I cut the recipe in half because I didn't need a boatload of this but below is the full recipe!

Cucumber Onion Salad

  • 2 or 3 cucumbers
  • half of a medium-sized Vidalia onion
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced
  • black pepper (optional)

Peel the cucumbers and slice into thicker slices and then half them. Slice up the onion and combine both in a bowl.

Take the vinegar, water, sugar, salt, garlic clove and pepper and mix well.

Pour over the cucumber and melon and cover. Let sit in fridge for at least one hour before serving. Enjoy!
