Kittencal's Creamy Cucumber Salad

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

Two medium regular cucumbers may be used in place of one large English cucumber, I prefer the taste and texture of English and has less water in it ---plan ahead there is a 75 minute draining time for the cucumber slices to remove excess moisture, this is a crucial step to prevent a watery salad, the onion is only optional, I like to add it in, this is a great recipe for garden fresh cucumbers :)
