    Cucumber and onion salad

    This crisp and tangy salad is not only easy to make, it's a refreshing menu addition for people who have had weight loss surgery.


    2 1/2 cups thinly sliced, unpeeled cucumbers (sliced lengthwise*)
    1/2 cup peeled and thinly sliced red onion
    1/3 cup SPLENDA® no calorie sweetener, granulated
    1/3 cup white vinegar
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper


    1. Toss cucumbers and onions together in medium bowl (Non-aluminum works best). Set aside.
    2. Whisk together remaining ingredients in separate bowl until blended.  Pour over cucumbers and onions.
    3. Cover and chill 2 hours; stir several times.

    * Note: To quickly slice cucumbers lengthwise, use a mandolin. Or you may slice them into thin disks.
