Vel's Right From The Garden Cucumber Salad

We were visiting my mom. my brother, Bill, and his wife, Vel, last spring. Vel had me help her put this salad together. I told her I don't care for cucumbers but Jerry does. At dinner I decided to be a good guest and eat a little of everything. Oh my, I loved these cucumbers! I asked her for the recipe and I've made them for us! It's very simple and very delicious!

4 long cucumbers, peeled and sliced thinly.
16 oz jar mayonaise (real)
Vinegar to taste (less than 1/4 c.)
1/2 onion, chopped
1 TBS prepared mustard
2 TBS sugar
1 TBS milk

Mix all ingredients except cucumbers and onions.
Mix well.
Stir cucumbers and onions into dressing, until well blended.
Chill 24 hours.
Serves 10.

Anita, you are so sweet. Come along to the picnic. I look forward to the cool weather and doesn't it sound fun being at a big old picnic with no bugs, nice crisp weather and lots of bloggy friends. Are you guys having problems with getting gas? We are here in Atlanta. On the way up last night I could only fine one station and they would only sell me $10.00 worth. We sure need to keep our eyes on the Lord. He is our only hope. I love Him so much.
