Growing up, a summer dinner table staple was always a bowl of cucumber and sliced onions, very close to this rendition. My mother used a simpler version. White vinegar, a little sugar and water and perhaps a pinch of salt and pepper. This recipe passes my nostalgia test with flying colours. I keep reading the word "refreshing" to describe this salad. It really is a refreshing side to any dinner. I followed the recipe as directed but unfortunately had no fresh rosemary. In fact, the dried rosemary I used was from a spice bottle that could have been stashed away at the back of my cupboard for some time. If anyone else opts for dried, remember to scale down the amount specified to approximately half of what is called for here using fresh. Knowing that some of my family members don't like the spiky pieces of dried rosemary, I used a sturdy plastic bag and a meat mallet to pulverize most of those bits. Next time I will use fresh. This is a wonderful addition to any meal. Thanks for posting it.
