Faye’s Cukes and Onions

Faye made this unusual dish for us once and said that whenever the Miracle Whip jar is almost empty, she make this dish.  I think it might be an eastern European dish, but I am not sure.  It is a great summer dish to make when cucumbers are ripe in the garden.

The combination of hot, buttery potatoes and the cool crunch of cucumbers with a creamy dressing is wonderful. Miracle Whip is a little sweeter than Mayo, so if you use Mayo just add a little sugar to add sweetness.

1 cup Miracle Whip (or mayonnaise)
3 cups water
2 Tbsp apple cider
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper

Mix all in the miracle whip jar. (I just add everything in, close the lid and shake it like crazy.)

3-4 cucumbers, peeled, halved and sliced
1/2 – 1 onion, sliced

Put the cucumbers and onions in a bowl, and pour the dressing over them. Cover and refrigerate for several house.

1 lb potatos, scrubbed and cut into quarters, unless using new potatoes
1/2 to 1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp butter (more if you like lots of butter!)

Boil potatoes in hot, salted water until soft – usually 25 minutes or so. Drain.

On a large serving dish, lay down the potatoes, sprinkle with salt and butter generously. Spoon over cucumbers and onions mix with plenty of the dressing, and serve immediately.
