  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Mix cucumbers, sweet onion, and sea salt together in a bowl. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let sit for 30 minutes.
  2. Turn cucumber mixture into a colander set over a bowl or in a sink; let drain, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has drained, about 30 minutes more. Transfer drained cucumber mixture to a large bowl.
  3. Stir mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, dill, garlic powder, and black pepper together in a bowl with a whisk until smooth; pour over the cucumber mixture and stir to coat vegetables with the dressing.
  4. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours.

I suggest reducing salt and sugar.

I made this last night as a side to my barbecue. I only put in 1 cup mayonnaise and that was way too much.. I also added a touch cayenne pepper, a.touch white wine, fresh dill, and fresh squee...

This is such a creamy and delicious salad. I didn't have dill weed and it is still perfectly flavored. I will be picking up Dill for the next time but it is fantastic without it too.

Don't forget to drain the cucumbers! I used cucumbers from our garden. Follow the steps EXACTLY, especially the draining part. I put mine in a salad spinner, which automatically caused a sepa...
