Salads: Cucumber Salad

My mother-in-law, Betty Zalmanek, is famous for her cucumber salad.  Her kids ask her to bring it to every family gathering.

 

Serves 6

 

2 cucumbers, peeled and sliced thin

Salt

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup sugar

Pepper as desired

1/2 cup vinegar

1 onion, sliced thin (optional)

 

Salt the cucumbers and set aside for 1 to 2 hours.

 

Mix remaining ingredients.  Rinse cucumbers and add them to the mayonnaise and vinegar mixture.  Use onions according to your liking for them, or omit them altogether.
