Tomato and Cucumber Salad

3

Growing up in the Midwest, you probably ate things like cucumber & tomato or cucumber & onion salad for dinner during the summer. In fact, at my house we often ate cucumber & onion salad with fresh steamed corn and sliced tomatoes with cottage cheese for a light summertime dinner. My mom really knew her stuff. Occasionally she would make creamed green beans too, one of dad’s favorites. Oh the memories.
