I think this is German, as my mother and aunts make this, but I haven't
seen it anywhere else....
Sweet-sour cucumber salad
You take the cukes, peel them and then thinly slice them on a grater or
a Mouli. Layer these in a colander and sprinkle salt on each layer.
Let these sit at least 1/2 hour so they wilt. Thoroughly wash off the salt.
Meanwhile, mix white vinegar in about equal proportions with sugar.
Toss the cucumbers with this and chill. You may need to adjust the
ratio to your personal taste.
For a salad of 3 cucumbers, I'd maybe use 1/4- 1/3 c. each of vinegar and
You could add dill seed to this, but I prefer it plain.
