This is such a yummy blend of cucumbers and onions in a sweet creamy sauce. When I was young my Grandma would make this for me all the time. That was over 30 years ago. It is a wonderful go to recipe for those hot summer days when you don't want to cook. I prefer using Vadalia onions, but any yellow onion will do. I try not to use too big of cucumber (diameter) because there are too many seeds. I have even substituted splenda for the sugar and light miracle whip with good results. (However, the juice doesn't flavor as long with the splenda). Finally, the cook time is the refrigerator marinate time. I hope you enjoy.
