Directions

  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'm sorry, I followed the recipe exact. After I covered the salad with plastic wrap and let it sit, I came back and the bowl was filled with liquid. The salt had continued to pull liquid from the cucumbers and onions which made this thin slurry that made having dressing impossible.

As a kid growing up, my mom used to make a recipe similar to this. I knew the basic ingredients, but not the measurements. I am so glad I found this recipe. I didn't want to wait for the cucumbers to drain, so I squeezed out the juice. This worked very good.
