Dad never cooked a lick, not even a hot dog at Mom's famous summer picnics. He did create this wonderful, simple salad that has been a big hit in our family for more than 60 years. He even grew the cucumbers in our backyard in Rahway, New Jersey.

EQUIPMENT: French chef's knife or food cutter (slicing cone blade), cutting board and glass salad bowl.

PREPARATION TIME: 10 Minutes - Makes 7 to 8 servings

2 large cucumber, scored but not peeled, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices

1 medium white onion, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices, or Julienned #2 cutting cone blade

1/2 red onion, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices, or Julienned #2 cutting cone blade

1 tablespoon sugar

1/2 cup distilled white vinegar

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
