Mom's Cucumber Salad


"This is the recipe that my mom made when I was small. It is still one of my favorites. Some friends add a little green onion to the recipe. My kids and I just aren't raw onion fans. Enjoy!"

I want to say a big thank you to some of the people who have tried my recipe and given me some great tips. I know the cucumbers can 'leak' their juices and make too much liquid so I usually add them close to serving, but I didn't know about that cool trick with the salt. I will be trying that next time I make these. Also I found out when my hubby makes these he uses red wine or apple cider vinegar which gives this a great taste. I noticed one reviewer said she used sour cream because she had no Mom used to do that also, I found out my sister tends to make it that way. Again, thanks for trying the recipe and glad you like it.

Good recipe. If you salt the sliced cukes and let them chill in a colander for an hour or so, they'll lose much of their water and hold on to the dressing. Maybe there was a little too much mayo and I used fresh dill, which I think is better than dry, but otherwise thanks for the recipe!


This salad was an absolute delight!! It had the perfect blend of what I was looking for, although I did add a bit more vinegar, and used 1/2 sour cream and 1/2 mayo, and used walla walla onions. I know we shouldn't rate when there have been substitutions, but this one really rocks!!! Thanks so much for the recipe. It only gets better with more time in the fridge!!!! YUM!
