Southern Charm and Chilled Cucumbers

Every once in a while I get a uncontrollable craving for this cucumber salad my grandmother Brownie used to make.

I posted the original recipe she wrote out for me years and years ago at the bottom of the post.


I shared these on Facebook yesterday but in case you missed them…… good, clean humor with a lot of Southern charm. That charm must have triggered the cucumber salad craving……

(Warning: you may snort with laughter……and don’t watch if the kids are napping……you’ll wake them!)

You can add a bit of sugar to dull the vinegar flavor. I also add onions and tomatoes sometimes to make a more colorful salad.

    Must try this recipe for hubby. I know he’d love it. Watched as many of Jeanne Robertson’s videos as I could find. Hilarious! And as Robin suggested the camping trip one – it’s a “must see”. LOL!

    Oh how I wish I could of had a grandmother I called Brownie (or was named that). Love it!! I love too how you posted the original hand written recipe. I have all my mom’s hand written recipes but unfortunately, some of them are incomplete. She was such a good cook that she never had to measure so she didn’t know how to write down a proper recipe! Good for her, bad for me! Anyway, she used to make this cucumber salad (we didn’t call it a salad – it was called pickled cucumber.). It was so delicious! I can close my eyes and concentrate and just taste it right now. :)
