Not all cooks are gardeners, and not all gardeners are cooks, but both lifestyles can be melded into one, says James Farmer III. Cucumbers and herbs from the garden are ideal, but store-bought is fine, too. This was the first recipe he learned to make as a child.
Vidalia onions, chopped
Vinegar, to taste
Sugar, salt, and pepper, to taste
1. Slice the cucumbers very thin.
2. Douse with other ingredients and float in a pretty bowl. The recipe can be different every time by varying the vinegars and herbs.
