Pressed Cucumber Salad (Pressgurka)

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by diner524

Posting for ZWT6 for the Scandinavia region. This was found online for Swedish recipes. Sounds like a great refreshing salad to add to any dinner. Update: 7/21/2011, I made this to go along with dinner the other night. I added some slices of tomato and onion. Due to the fact that I like things tart, I decreased the sugar and a little on the salt, but did also add some garlic salt. I feel this is good recipe for those who like it not so tart, especially kids, but feel free to add other veggies and spices!!
