It was the 1970s, and most weekends, we pulled out the wicker picnic basket – fitted with nesting plastic plates, bowls, and cutlery in red, blue, yellow, and green – to go to the lake for swimming and grilling. My favorite summertime salad was Mom’s cucumbers. The grassy-fresh parsley and piquant onions cut through the creaminess of the dressing and the almost-sweet cucumbers were cool and refreshing. To me, even in winter, this salad tastes like those lazy, carefree days.
