Dad's Creamy Cucumber Salad - Review by MayK
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 separation between the cucumbers and the brine. I also waited the full 30 minutes indicated. I also added a sprig of fresh tarragon that I chopped up and it added an amazing flavor. I made it a bit last minute so I wasn't able to keep it in the refrigerator the full two hours, but it tasted great after cooling for 45 minutes. The incredible thing about this salad is how crispy the cucumber remained, even the left overs we ate the next day.. I've made it twice already; my husband loves it.
Cucumber and sweet onion swim together in a dressing made with mayonnaise and vinegar in this simple creamy cucumber salad recipe.
