    Iron Bloomers's Note:

    A very different way to fix cucumbers. A great go-a-long with summer meals.

      Barb, and excellent summer salad. Very close to another cucumber salad I make. The sugar gave it a new dimension to the one I make with just plain vinegar and water. This was easy to make ahead and keep in the refrigerator overnight. Save the vinegar and keep those cucumbers in there all summer long. Thanks for posting this keeper.

      My Mom made this also. I think it's one of the reasons I like cucumbers so much. It's refreshing and because of the sugar is not sour. Really perks up your mouth with a nice tang.
