Recipe from: Cathy Leslie

This is a recipe I have used on many occasions when I have a great supply of tomatoes on hand. Date and source unknown.

2 cucumbers
1 large red onion, cut into rings
Honey French Dressing (see below)
paprika for dusting

With a sharp knife, peel the skin from the cucumber in narrow strips then cut cucumber in think round slices. Place on a small platter and arrange slices of onion over cucumbers. Right before serving pour Honey French Dressing over all. Dust with paprika.

Honey French Dressing

1 cup salad oil
½ cup honey
½ teaspoon salt
⅓ cup chili sauce
½ cup red wine vinegar
½ cup finely chopped white onion
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

Combine all ingredients and put in tight-fitting covered jar. Shake vigorously.
