Annie's Creamy Cucumbers

READY IN: 4hrs 10mins
Recipe by mums the word

As a teenager, I worked in a boat club where they served these delicious cucumbers. A sweet old lady named Annie would prepare this daily, and I have fond memories of her. The members of the club loved this dish so I know that you will too. (Preparation time is very fast, but the numbers below include the refrigeration time.)

Great salad. We skipped the salting part since we used a non bitter garden cucumber.
