Cucumber salad

I have just picked some fresh cucumbers from my garden…..they are so fresh, and so much tastier than the ones from the store (no wax on these ones….). Garden fresh cucumbers actually do have a very nice taste, and can be eaten with the peel on, but I prefer them peeled.

Cucumbers may be used in a variety of ways: in tossed salads, as cucumber tea sandwiches, sliced and served plain or with a dip, used in numerous appetizers, etc. I love my cucumbers in a cucumber salad, dressed with sour cream or vinaigrette style.

Ukrainian Potato Salad (Olivie) – European Recipe

There are so many different versions of Potato Salad, but once you taste this one, it will be your favorite.
It is very similar to the Suburban Potato Salad, but it contains a few different ingredients, such as spicier mustard but no apple.  In Ukraine many cooks add cubed smoked sausage (Kovbasa) to this salad, making it even richer in taste and texture.
