Hi, I just got back from WDW, and really liked a cucumber salad I tried at Crystal Palace.
I was wondering if anyone knows how to make it!
It has a slightly creamy dressing with a little sweetness to it.

Thanks Beth.

I may just try it for our party this Sunday.
I think the cucumber salad at Crystal Palace had some sort of Asian influence.

I'm also somplace in the great state of NJ.

I just had some cucumbers that were sliced in some kind of sweet vinegar with red onion slices. Does anyone know this recipe?

A lady from India made a delicious cucumber, tomato and yogurt salad. When I asked her what herbs/spices were in the yogurt she wouldn't tell me. Has anyone had anything like that? I'd love the recipe.

Here's a really simple recipe.

1 cup mayo (the real stuff)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 cups sliced cucumbers

In a bowl, combine mayo, sugar, vinegar, and salt. Add cucumbers; stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. Yield: 6-8 servings

Sometimes it helps to disgorge the cucumbers of their liquid before you make this up. After you slice them, lightly salt and leave in a colander for 15 minutes. Rinse briefly with water, then press out the excess liquid on paper towels. You don't have to do this step, but the salad can get a little too watering if it's stored in the frig overnight. If you do this first, you might want to forgoe the salt in the recipe.
