    My late mother used to like onions-used to ask me to take onions-will try to get it done by maidservant or try to get it as a nice eatery.

    Husband really liked this salad. Used 1 tablespoon of sugar instead of 2. Also used garden onions with green tops. Easy to make.

    try it with a package of Good Seasons Italian dressing mix. Don't follow directions, instead add it directly from package to your mix

    This is my absolute favorite cucumber salad. Sometimes I prepare it just for me, but if my husband and sons are around I have stiff competition to get my share.
