This cucumber salad has many happy memories for me because my grandmother used to make it as a side dish when we came over for lunch. I still enjoy it because it has such a fresh taste to it – and because it brings back so many wonderful memories of family lunches at my grandmother’s house. Food really is a great connector! I hope you will enjoy this salad as much as I do. 🙂

  • 2 cucumbers
  • 2 tablespoons cream

How to Make It
