Creamy Cucumber Salad

1 medium red onion, roughly diced
2 medium cucumbers, sliced 1/2 in thick & halved (peeled?)
1/2 green pepper, thinly sliced & cut in 1 in strips
2 large cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tablespoons white vinegar (or apple cider vinegar)
1/2 cup mayonnaise...

1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
4 tablespoons granulated sugar (or 2T honey)
1 teaspoon seasoning salt (or Garlic, Thyme, or any other seasoning)
1 teaspoon dried dill

Instructions
Peel & slice cucumbers in 1/2 in thick slices. Then half ea slice & transfer all slices to a lrg mixing bowl (See note). Roughly dice red onion & add to the bowl. Quarter tomatoes, remove seeds, rough dice the tomato “meat” & add to the bowl. Thinly slice 1/2 green pepper, cut slices in 1 in strips & add to the bowl. Toss prepared “veggies” to achieve a good distributional mix. Add last 6 ingredients to bowl, mix well & refrigerate at least 2 hrs (stirring at least once to redistribute ingredients).

Notes: The cucumber cut is especially important. If thinly sliced, most cucumbers wilt & do not retain their crunch.

— When all ingredients have been combined, the mixture will appear dry & lack a creamy texture or appearance. DO NOT PANIC – After sitting for a while, the dressing will thin out, as the flavors blend.
