Mom's Cucumber Salad Recipe
Cucumber slices are tossed with a cool, creamy vinegar and sugar dressing in this splendid summer salad.
Thin, thin cucumbers are doused with sugar, water, vinegar, celery seed and onion, and chilled for an hour or so. Great as a salad or as open face sandwiches on pumpernickel bread.
Really good. I added onions but made the dressing as-written. Even my daughter who isn't fond of cucumbers like it. Who'd thought?? LOL
This is so refreshing on a hot summer day. I have an abundance of cucumbers in my garden and was looking for a good recipe and this is it! I peeled them and then put them in the food processor (used the slicing blade)in order to get them really thin. I used splenda in place of sugar and they were a tad sweet for me so I just added more dill and vinegar, but that can be alleviated by using less splenda next time. I also used half sour cream and half mayo. I think next time I may use all sour cream.
I'm rating this 5 stars AFTER my alterations. First: you MUST salt and let sit for at least one hour to allow for the liquid to drain off. Drain the liquid THEN add the sauce, otherwise its too runny. Second: For those of you like me who love garlic add about 2 medium sized cloves minced. Third: Add about 1 tblsp or even 2 of FRESH DILL! makes all the difference. And lastly: refrigerate 4 hours or overnight for the flavors to really meld! Enjoy alongside grilled chicken/steak and roasted potatoes, yummy!
