    Darlene Summers's Note:

    This is a very old-fashioned recipe. My mother made this when I was a kid. It is a very refreshing dish and goes with lots of things.

      Hi Darlene; This is a great recipe. I love cucumbers and onions, even in a sandwich. I used a good quality (6 year old) Balsamic Vinegar instead of white vinegar, and WOW, just super-great. So easy to prepare. Thank you, "Uncle Bill"

      This is a great way to prepare cucumbers! I followed your instructions exactly and wouldn't change a thing (except the next time, I will DOUBLE the batch). I used this dish in place of a regular garden salad. Thank you so much for sharing a quick and easy and very flavorful dish!!!
