Fresh Cuccumber Salad

Fresh cucumbers, peeled and sliced (as thick as you want)
Sweet onion, thinly sliced into rings

When you start making dinner, put 1 tablespoon salt in bottom of a 1-quart bowl and fill bowl half full of water. Stir to dissolve. Add cucumbers and chill (10 to 15 minutes), or if you need to hurry, add ice cubes to bowl for 5 minutes. This is where everyone so far has agreed upon the process.

AUNT ELAINE: Drain cucumbers in a colander, do not rinse. Put in bowl, pour in a bottle of seasoned rice vinegar and dilute with water to taste.

AUNT DEE & AUNT LETA: To drain cucumbers, place hand over cucumbers, tip the bowl over the sink and quickly flip cucumbers back into the bowl. Take a rounded serving tablespoon of mayonnaise or Miracle Whip (your preference) and blend with the cucumbers. Mayonnaise will combine with the wet cucumbers. Pepper to taste.

AUNT LOIS: Doesn’t care.

AUNT MARCIA: Still working on a variation.

AUNT JEANETTE: Liza and Ellen will have to call, she left early.
