My grandmother had a huge garden. When we would visit in the summer she always made this salad.

  • each medium cucumbers, not the huge salad ones, use the pickle ones
  • 1 each medium onion, sliced thin
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 cup whole cream
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1 dash black pepper
For this recipe the cucumbers are salted down to remove excess water. This keeps the water from diluting the salad. Peel and slice the cucumbers. Place in a large bowl and stir in the salt. Place a plate directly on the cucumbers to press them down, add a weight to the top of the plate, maybe a can of beans. The idea is to press the moisture out. My mother uses a rock. Let them rest like this for several hours in the refrigerator. Pour off the liquid. Do not rinse.

Add the onion
Add cream, enough to cover
Add vinegar to taste, about 1/4 cup
Pepper to taste

Some people use sour cream instead of the whole cream.
