Springtime Green Grape Cucumber Salad

This is probably the simplest recipe I've ever made, aside from opening a bag or a box. It's surprisingly yummy and if you can get people to taste it, you seldom get a complaint. It's an old family recipe that I learned a few years ago from my Great Grandmother. I was afraid at first, but have since become addicted. It's great for a cool snack on a hot day.

You will need:
  • equal amounts of green grapes and cucumbers.
  • Miracle whip (or Mayo if you prefer, or even vegan mayo)
  • salt to taste

  1. Wash and halve green grapes
  2. Peal and slice cucumbers then cut slices into quarters
  3. slowly add small amounts (very small compared to the amount of grapes and cucumbers) of the Miracle whip. A little bit goes a long way. don't over do it or it will be nasty.
  4. sprinkle with a tiny bit of salt, mix and refrigerate for an hour or so. Then serve cold.
