This is a salad I have been fixing for years. We usually have it with Oriental food but I also fix it when I have lots of cucumbers from the garden. It is refreshing and keeps well in the refrigerator. I did say it takes about 30 minutes to prepare because of the time needed to salt and let the cucumbers drain.
