(Salads) - (The International Jewish Cook Book)

Pare thickly, from end to end, and lay in ice-water one hour; wipe them,
slice thin, and slice an onion equally thin. Strew salt over them, shake
up a few times, cover and let remain in this brine for another hour.
Then squeeze or press out every drop of water which has been extracted
from the cucumbers. Put into a salad bowl, sprinkle with white pepper
and scatter bits of parsley over them; add enough vinegar to cover. You
may slice up an equal quantity of white or red radishes and mix with
this salad.

Other Recipes


Thinly slice one large green cucumber and one medium-sized onion (if
liked). Sprinkle over about one teaspoonful of salt. Allow to stand a
short time, then place in a piece of cheese-cloth and squeeze out all
the moisture possible. Place cucumbers, when drained, in the dish in
which they are to be served, add a couple tablespoonfuls of sour
vinegar, mix well. Then pour over enough thick sour cream to half
cover and a dust of pepper. Cucumbers are considered less unwholesome,
prepared in this manner.
