Greek Cucumber Salad

Looking for a quick refreshing salad?  Look no further, this deliciously quick Greek Cucumber Salad is a perfect choice.  I sometimes just like to create things from things I have on hand in my fridge or pantry and this creation I will definitely be making again... sometimes it pays to clean out the fridge, you might be surprised with what you can come up with!

1/2 large sweet onion
