"WE HAD an enormous vegetable garden, so we enjoyed freshly picked cucumbers in summer. After the cucumber were sliced and soaked awhile in salt water. Mother added thick cream, which she carefully scooped from the top of some fresh milk."
- 3 medium cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced
- 1 medium onion, sliced
- 2 cups water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt

- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup cider vinegar
- Minced fresh parsley, optional
- In a bowl, combine cucumbers, onion, water and salt. Let stand for 1 hour; drain and rinse. In a serving bowl, beat cream, sugar and vinegar. Add cucumbers and onion; toss gently. Sprinkle with parsley if desired. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"I am not a fan of plain cucumbers but really liked this recipe. I will definitely make it again. It was a tasty change and fun to serve guests at a summer barbeque."
