Author Notes

This is my mothers recipe I have made it for years and years. To make it lower calorie you may substitute low fat sour cream. You may also leave out the onions if you want to.This salad is a refreshing one for this time of year but I make it also when cucumbers are out of season just for the nostalgia. —quiltiebee

This is one of the first recipes I made as a very young child(my mother sliced of course, no food processors in the 1940' and 50's) and also one of the first my children helped as a few minutes and it was done. The squeezing is he oart I always liked.
