Sautéed Sliced Cucumbers and Onions

(From Victory Garden Cookbook)


1 lb cucumbers

2 T. butter


2-3 T. chopped chives

1 clove garlic

2 T. chopped parsley

1 C. finely sliced onions

Freshly ground pepper


Peel, score, seed and slice the cucumbers.  Salt and let stand for 20-30 min., then drain and pat dry. 


Crush the garlic.  Cook the onions and garlic in butter until the onions are wilted, about 5 min.  Add the cucumber and sauté for 2 min. until cooked through, but still slightly crunchy.  Remove the garlic.  Toss in the chives and parsley and season to taste with pepper and salt
