Low-Fat Cucumber Salad

A splash of lemon juice, sweet onion and cider vinegar give a delightfully tart bite to this zesty, quick salad. Best of all, it’s light on calories. —Sharon Seving, Sidney, Ohio

    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.
