Alan's Kitchen Picnicking & Tailgating Tips:
You need to do this recipe a day or two in advance.  For picnicking or tailgating, I would put the onions and cucumbers in a large jar.  Then when you are ready to load the ice chest, place the jar in there.  When you get to the picnic or tailgate site, pour into small paper bowls and use as a salad.
