    CulinaryQueen's Note:

    I cut this from a U.S. magazine, but not sure which one as I've had it for quite some time. This summertime dish can be prepared and chilled two hours before serving. The recipe calls for English cucumbers but you can use regular ones if you can't find the English ones. You want a total of about 1 1/2 lbs. of cukes. Cooking time is chilling time.

      Boy do we LOVE this at our house! I have made it dozens of times with the following adjustments: first, I do PEEL the cucumbers and slice them with a mandoline, second I let them sit about an hour in the salt to drain off maximum moisture. Also, I use dried dill. This salad is super. Thanks.

      Nice refreshing salad! I used less than a half the sugar and came out great! Thank you!

      I really liked the dill in this. I halved the vinegar and only used 1/4 tsp of the sugar, so it wouldn't be too sweet (both were still plenty for us). Served 4 as a main side vegetable dish.
