A friend shared this recipe with me years ago. She had a vegetable garden and always had a good yield of cucumbers. This pleasant, comforting salad is the right amount for one or two. The cucumber and green onions give a nice texture contrast and refreshing crunch. -Bernadeane McWilliam, Decatur, Illinois
