This is the recipe that my mom made when I was small. It is still one of my favorites. Some friends add a little green onion to the recipe. My kids and I just aren't raw onion fans. Enjoy!

I want to say a big thank you to some of the people who have tried my recipe and given me some great tips. I know the cucumbers can 'leak' their juices and make too much liquid so I usually add them close to serving, but I didn't know about that cool trick with the salt. I will be trying that next time I make these. Also I found out when my hubby makes these he uses red wine or apple cider vinegar which gives this a great taste. I noticed one reviewer said she used sour cream because she had no mayo...my Mom used to do that also, I found out my sister tends to make it that way. Again, thanks for trying the recipe and glad you like it. Lisa Pav Read More

Wow this was too sweet for us. I ended up tripling everything but the sugar and it was still too sweet. Read More

Good recipe. If you salt the sliced cukes and let them chill in a colander for an hour or so, they'll lose much of their water and hold on to the dressing. Maybe there was a little too much mayo and I used fresh dill, which I think is better than dry, but otherwise thanks for the recipe! Read More

This salad was an absolute delight!! It had the perfect blend of what I was looking for, although I did add a bit more vinegar, and used 1/2 sour cream and 1/2 mayo, and used walla walla onions. I know we shouldn't rate when there have been substitutions, but this one really rocks!!! Thanks so much for the recipe. It only gets better with more time in the fridge!!!! YUM! Read More

Oh boy! This is good! We just hit our first day over 100 degrees yesterday so I wanted to start doing summer cool recipes. This will be a hit all summer. I was afraid of the sugar seemed like too much but I like to be true to a recipe for the first time and it worked really nicely. I couldnt find my white vinegar so I used rice vinegar (then found the white) and it also worked very well. There is something about the combination of cool cucmber and the salty sweet dressing that makes you want to have more. I kept taking sneak bites before I could put it in the fridge to cool. I wouldnt do anything different Yum! Read More

Very Good! I scaled back to 4 servings and only used about 2 tablespoons of sugar. After slicing cucumber I drained them for about 15 minutes. This is to keep from adding additional liquid to the dressing and making it thin and watery. Great summer salad Read More

YUM! My cucumber were on the larger rather than medium side, so the full cup of mayo worked - if they were smaller I could see where there would be too much dressing. I also used splenda in place of the sugar and 1/2 sweet onion. Plus I sprinkled the sliced cucumbers with a little salt and let them sit then rinsed before adding the dressing. It was still good and not watery the next day. Read More

This salad is terrific with a spicy dish like hot wings etc. We love onions so I added 1/2 c. thinly sliced sweet red onion. The salad tastes even better if you marinade for a while. I'll make thia a lot! Read More

Great flavors!! Love the ease of preparation. My ONLY complaint is that mine is very watery. I made it yesterday evening and this morning it is pretty watery. I guess next time I'll try the salt trick I've read about. Otherwise it would have been 5 stars for taste and ease! Read More
