Cucumber and Pasta Salad

This past weekend we had a 65th birthday party for my dad.  Kevin and I prepared and cooked the food.  I received this recipe from our good friend Linda.  Linda has been a friend to Kevin for over 30 years and my friend for 17 years.

Linda and I have many hobbies in common. She taught me how to can and we exchange recipes regularly.  She has provided me with some of the best recipes I have made.  A person could not ask for a better friend and I am glad she has been in our lives!

She said that one of her coworkers made this salad recently and thought I might like to try it.  My dad's party was the perfect opportunity.  Especially since I have cucumbers that seem never ending.
Cucumber and Pasta Salad

1 pound cooked bow tie noodles
4-6 cucumbers; seeded and cut into pieces
1 ½ cups half and half
½ medium white onion; sliced
1 tbsp dill weed
1 16 ounce jar cole slaw dressing
Salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste

This salad could not be any simpler to make and the ingredient list is pretty darn short.  This is a definite summer keeper!


  1. Thank you for all your kind words Steve! I can't imagine my life without you and Kevin in it. Together, we have the perfect recipe for a lasting friendship!

    Glad the salad recipe worked out for you - simple & satisfying!

    Love you both!

  2. This salad was really good. Kind of like cucumbers and sour cream and pasta salad all rolled into one. I enjoyed it immensely. And the cupcakes were great too.
