Old Fashion Cucumber Salad

Recipe by Chef likestocook

I have always loved cucumbers in vinegar. My grandmother used to fix them and this tastes like hers. I can remember her saying that she started hers like her pickles so getting most of the water out of the cucumbers must be the trick. I can remember her putting left over onions and tomatoes into the vinegar mixture after a meal. Laura and I love this in the summer.

Simple, old-fashioned, and very tasty. Couldn't find pickling cucumbers this time of year so used regular cucs, sliced a little thicker, with good results. Love the tip about tossing in leftover onions and tomatoes. Yummy! Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for PAC Fall 2007.
