Sweet and Sour Cucumber Salad on Day 5 of #KickOffToSummerWeek2014



Welcome to Day #5 of Kick Off to Summer Week, a multi-blogger event co-host by Lauren of From Gate to Plate and Summer of Summer Scraps.

With summer quickly approaching and Memorial Day in a few weeks, we wanted to make sure you had plenty of ideas for your Memorial Day activities. Each day we will be serving up a variety of different appetizers, main dishes, desserts, decor, printables and more all centered around the up-coming Memorial Day. We hope you enjoy all of these wonderful ideas.

Tune in each day starting with Monday, May 12 and ending on Saturday, May 17. We have great prizes up for grabs throughout the week so you will not want to miss out on any of the days! Follow #KickOffToSummerWeek2014 on Twitter to keep up to date with all of our spectacular ideas and giveaways!

Today I'm bringing you another old family favorite.  This salad is super easy, super quick and {you may have guessed} super tasty!



We had a version of this cucumber salad hundreds of times in the summer when I was a kid.  This is a great one when it is hot {San Diego has been extraordinarily hot this last week - hot, dry and windy}.  You don't have to turn on the stove or oven or ever be in the kitchen very long.  Cool and delicious, this is just what you want for those hot summer dinners!




Before you get on to the {super easy} recipe, be sure to check out the rest of the Kick Off to Summer Week bloggers below!
