Summer Cucumber Salad

This recipe is from my Mom. It’s older than dirt and an instant classic. Paired with corn and kabobs on the grill… nothing better.


2-3 fresh cucumbers
1 tbs. salt
1 cup milk
3 tbs. vinegar
1-1/2 tbs. sugar
1 medium white onion
Salt and pepper to taste


Wash, peel and slice the cucumbers crosswise into 1/4″ sections. Soak in a bowl with cold water and 1 tbs. salt for about 20 minutes.

Drain the water from the bowl. Add the remaining ingredients. Mix well, taste and correct the seasoning if necessary. Chill overnight, covered. The correct amount of pepper, salt, vinegar and sugar in this recipe is key.

Great side dish for a hot summer day.
