Before the meal Shari was remembered in a special prayer. Although it was emotional for many it was also a great tribute to a wonderful lady.
Again we were blessed with wonderful weather. Boy am I getting spoiled! The reunion is held in a state park that is great.
Cucumber, Tomato, Onion Salad
This is made with a vinegar dressing.
2 cups vinegar
3 cups water
1/4 cup sugar
salt and pepper to taste
Bring to a boil and allow to cool. Pour over veggies and refrigerate.
It was hard to put exact measurements to this recipe. It is one of those recipes that you just have keep tasting until you get it right. Mine was a little tart when I tasted it the next morning and I had to add some more sugar and some additional water. I used a huge cucumber, two onions and about six tomatos. I made a really big batch.
I am not a tomato or onion fan, but I love the cucumbers marinated in this.
This is my grandmother's recipe. I remember it always being served with dinner as long as the garden was producing. It brought back lots of memories as this was made. Enjoy!
