This is a nice refreshing salad. My Mom made this a lot when I was young, maybe it was because we had a huge vegetable garden, so when a certain type of vegetable became ripe we had a lot of it.Any type of cucumber can be used for this recipe.
If cucumbers are very large and seedy, cut in half length-wise and scrape seeds out with a spoon. If I’m making a small bowl of this I just use a good carrot peeler and slice off thin strips in no time at all. It doesn’t matter how thick or thin the slices are, it’s all personal preference.
Optional – 3 tablespoons white sugar
Cucumbers will become soft and easier to mix if left to sit another 15 minutes.
