MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 19, 2014

Sometimes I add a little dill for more flavor. Also, I slice the cucumbers very thin, sprinkle with salt and let sit in a colander for about 20 minutes. It's amazing how much liquid drains out. I then rinse thoroughly and squeeze dry in a kitchen towel. The cucumbers stay very crunchy and I don't think this adds to the salt content. A great old recipe.

I love this salad. I thought I had lost it for good until I found it online. Whew! It is my favorite way to eat cucumbers.
