    Tisme's Note:

    Cucumber Salad is served all over Scandinavia, especially in summer. I got this recipe from an old cookbook given to me by my mother, and the recipe states "Made this way this Cucumber salad will not give you indigestion".

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Wash the cucumber and if the skin is tough, peel it. Slice thinly and place into a large bowl and sprinkle with salt. Toss to spread the salt evenly, then place a heavy weight on top of the cucumber mix and leave for about 15 minutes.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile mix the vinegar, water and sugar together and season with a little pepper. The dressing should taste fairly sweet and not too sharp.
    3. 3
      Squeeze the cucumber in a cheesecloth (or drain very well) to remove all the liquid. Place the cucumber in a serving bowl and pour over the dressing. Leave for a half an hour in fridge before serving.
    4. 4
      Add chopped chives or dill before serving if using.

      This was a nice, light salad, and went perfectly with the other selections I made for a Scandinavian buffet. I doubled the recipe and used unseasoned rice wine vinegar and dill instead of chives. I will make this again, as we all enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

      Fresh chives from the garden, cukes from our CSA box and I chose white balsamic vinegar. Reviewed for Make My Recipe Downunder.
