Cool-as-a-Cucumber Salad

Yield: Makes 8 servings.


  • 3 medium cucumbers
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 small yellow onion, sliced thin
  • 4 tablespoons apple-cider vinegar
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons pepper
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup sour cream


Peel cucumbers and slice thin. Cover with salt. Add onion. Press with a heavy weight (a heavy skillet works well) for 2 hours. Drain off liquid. Stir other ingredients into cucumbers, and chill.

  • Tasted just like my great-grandmother’s I am blessed to be able to remember. I am 83 years old.
