Cool As A Cucumber

With gardens producing like crazy now, you may need a recipe to use up some of those cucumbers, try this one...DELICIOUS!!!!

Cucumber Salad

8 oz Small Penne Pasta
1 Tbsp Veg Oil
2 medium cucumbers-sliced thin
1 medium onion-sliced thin
3/4 c sugar
3/4 c white vinegar
1 c water
1 Tbsp prepared mustard (I used Gulden's Spicy Brown)
1 Tbsp dried parsley
1 Tsp salt
1 Tsp black pepper
1/2 Tsp garlic powder

Cook & drain pasta.
Place in a large bowl.
Stir in oil, cucs & onion
Combine remaining ingredients
Pour mixture over & toss
Cover and chill for 3-4 hours or overnight before serving.

Given to me by a good friend (in fact, she brought it to one of our cookouts as a surprise), this Pasta Cucumber Salad is so refreshing on a warm summer day.

I want to cry! My cukes did so poorly this year (fruit production, that is) that I finally just ripped up the beautiful plants. It was my fault, since I just let them trail in the raised bed and never could see the 50 huge cukes hiding underneath the huge green leaves. Next year I will do better! Shhhh. Don't tell my Master Gardener mates! They will take back my badge! Thanks for the recipe. It will be a great addition to our menu in The Netherlands in October. Hugs, Linda@Wetcreek Blog
Sounds perfect for a hot day and great for a picnic with no mayo. I'm going to keep this one and try it :-)

mother used to make cukes like this, but not add the pasta. she left it in a covered container in the fridge and we ate it like that. added to the pasta makes it a meal. yum
