Adrienne's Cucumber Salad
June 03, 2008

I was looking for a recipe similar to my great aunt's "cucumber pickles" and this came pretty close. I made it for Memorial Day and my family really enjoyed it. One tip: You really need to salt the cucumbers before making the rest of the recipe to draw out excess water. I don't salt ANYTHING but I won't skip this step with this recipe. For all of the reviewers who ended up with too much liquid, I think this is why. I used 2 english cucumbers, sliced them thin and then sprinkled one tablespoon salt over them and covered with plastic wrap for 2 hours. This will sweat out excess liquid that can be poured off before proceeding with the recipe. It is absolutely unnecessary to boil anything -just pour everything over the cukes after salting and let set in fridge overnight. I also reduced the sugar to 1/3 cup. Wonderful!
