Even though it requires sitting overnight, this recipe is so easy to make. My mother made this all the time when I was growing up--it was one of her favorites and also my sister's. One caution: this salad should be very creamy, so you may need to adjust the dressing ingredients accordingly.

How to Make CUCUMBERS AND ONIONS

Step-by-Step

  1. Peel the cucumbers and slice thin. Layer in a shallow dish, sprinkling each layer with salt. Let stand overnight.
  2. In the morning, drain the cucumbers and rinse; let dry on paper towels.
  3. Slice the onions thin and mix gently with the cucumber slices.
  4. In a small bowl, beat together the mayonnaise or salad dressing, sugar and vinegar until creamy.
  5. Stir into the mixed cucumbers and onions.

How To Make The Perfect Hard Boiled Egg Recipe

How to Make the Perfect Hard Boiled Egg

Kitchen Crew @JustaPinch

They pack protein into a salad, are a fantastic on-the-go breakfast and a necessity for making deviled eggs. Hard boiled eggs are fantastic but are a bit intimidating to cooks....
