My mother always made this & I still love it. She used to sprinkle salt on the cucumbers & let them set a few minutes. Then she would squeeze them with her hands to get the water out of them. Then she would add the ingredients & chill. Very good. I don't care for cucumbers, but love them this way
I have made my cucumbers this way all my life. My grandmother and mother made them the same way. Like the other review, I always salt them and rinse them before mixing.
I use mini cukes now, less seeds and slime. There's no need to peel them as the skins aren't bitter like the larger cukes, also most of your nutrients are in the skin so it makes it a bit healthier for you. To remove some liquid from your cukes put a paper towel on the bottom of your bowl then slice your cukes and salt them. After they sit for a while remove the wet paper towel and use another dry one to pat the cukes if there's any moisture left. Now you have a healthier cuke that the sauce will stick to better. I don't use sugar in my recipe, but that's a matter of preferance I guess, also if I have cider vinegar I'll use that. Overall it's a good recipe. --Bear--
This tastes better the next day as the sweet and sour permeate the cucumbers. I have been making this for years and I always double what I think so I can have some the next day and I don't like left overs! I have used artifical sweetner as well but need to increase liquid and I never use salt as I like the sauce that the cucumbers make while it sits.
My mom makes this recipe except we use scallion. It's so homey and fresh.
Yes this is a great salad.
Yes, my grandmother made this as I was growing up also. Such a good, simple old German (?) recipe. I think this is why I like cucumbers so much.
