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!

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