I do not remember where I got this recipe. We hosted a family reunion in Durango, Colorado. We served this as one of the side dishes. This recipe is great with barbecue and can be made ahead of time. I have never timed how long it takes to make but am guessing about 20 minutes. Note: The last time I made this, I used a slicer I bought. The cucumbers were sliced very thin. They really need to be a little thicker to avoid getting too limp in the liquid that collects.
