Simple Cucumber Salad – A perfect side dish for your summer barbecue!
In Loving Memory of my Baba (Grandmother)
Rest in Peace, Baba – I will always love you!
My Grandma passed away less than a month ago; she was 76 years old.
I have finally come to terms with her passing and am now somewhat able to talk about it.
I love her more than words can ever describe, and I will miss her very very much.
I want to share this cucumber salad with you because this is what she always served before setting up the table with a complete meal. This was part of our ‘meze’, or the appetizer.
In Macedonia it is a custom to serve this salad with a shot of homemade Rakija, or Moonshine, and nibble on it over an interesting conversation about life, politics, kids, etc…
Here’s to you, Baba. Say Hi to Dedo for me!
