Comments
Note: Some people like a bit of sugar to their salad, be cautious how much you add, about a teaspoon is fine for most, not more than a tablespoon is considered fairly sweet for this recipe.

Note: Some cooks like to salt, drain and rinse their cucumbers prior to making this salad. That is entirely up to you, however, fresh sliced cucumbers with all their natural water is usually best in the summer months.
