I can see why she always kept a bowl of it in the fridge in the summer. Even if you don't have a garden, having this on hand makes it worth buying the cucumbers.
Best Cucumber Dill Salad
3-4 cucumbers, peeled and sliced/chopped into bite size pieces (Using English cucumbers will eliminate the seeds)
1 medium onion, sliced thin, then chopped into bite-size pieces
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup Splenda or sugar
1/4 t. salt, if desired
1 cup mayonnaise
1 T. dried dill weed
(Diced tomatoes are optional)
Place peeled, sliced and chopped cucumbers and onions in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, mix mayonnaise, dill, sugar, vinegar. Stir until well blended. Pour over the cucumber-onion mix and toss until everything is coated.
*if dressing is too thin, simply add another 1/2 cup of mayo.
Place in refrigerator and allow to chill for at least 30 minutes.
