Broccoli & Cucumber Salad

I love Broccoli Salad, but had forgotten all about it until a friend brought us some 6 weeks ago. She brought it over in separate containers so it wouldn't get soggy before we ate it, and I was very surprised to see cucumbers and grated cheese among the ingredients. I wasn't sure that cucumbers and grated cheese would work with the broccoli salad I remembered, but was pleasantly surprised. It was delicious! I made it again today and managed to get a picture of the last little bit before it was eaten up. So here's Mom's Broccoli Salad recipe with two new ingredients:

5 or 6 slices of bacon, fried and chopped
A little grated onion (we skipped this today)
3 tbsp. mayonnaise
1 tsp. vinegar
2 tsp. sugar
enough milk to make it creamy
pinch of salt
Florets from 1 bunch of broccoli, cut small
Cucumber cut into chunks, approximately same amount as broccoli (we used half of an english cucumber)
Grated cheddar, as much as you like

To make dressing, combine mayo, vinegar, sugar and onion (if using) in small bowl. Whisk in milk to desired consistency. Combine remaining ingredients in large bowl, pour dressing over top and stir well.
