Cheap Produce – Cucumber Salad

I always stop to check the reduced produce rack at our local grocery store. Sometimes its bags of potatoes that have ripped open or misshapen fruit. Often I can find things we can use or freeze.  I love to freeze peppers and use them when peppers are high priced over the winter.  Cut them into strips and toss them into a zip lock in the freezer.

This last time I found a bag of misshapen cucumbers for $1.  Our local cucumbers will not be ready for a couple of months so it was nice to have cucumber salad with our grilled pork steak for dinner.


So easy to make!  Start with around 2 cups of mayo or miracle whip.  Add in a rounding 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/4 cup of vinegar.  Mix that well and stir in the thinly sliced cucumbers. I leave it in the fridge for a hour or so before dinner.
