^^^^^^^^ no alternative in Aus either, tho if it's sweet... I'm not gonna like it!! If we use mayo... is some kind of mirale whip god with laser eyes and steel razor fingers about to materialise and chop off our heads????

Fresh cucumber salad that's good for you!

thinly sliced cukes (I like the little unwaxed pickling cukes sliced long w/a cheese slicer)
thinly sliced vidalia onions
rice vinegar (seasoned or unseasoned)
salt & pepper to taste

Let it sit for an hour or two before eating. Soooo delicious and crisp and refreshing!

Miracle whip has a lot of the same qualities as mayonaisse, but it happens to be just a bit more flavourful, with a slightly sour taste to it. I suppose it might be compared to mayonaisse with a bit more lemon juice in it...and also some sugar to make up for the lemon juice. There are lots of recipe's for the dressing in a cucumber and onion salad. My mother makes it a couple different ways depending on what she has available in the fridge. Some of them call for sour cream, and I suppose yogurt would work in it as well. I do know if you get it right..that you can't hardly get enough of it. I can eat a whole bowl full if the dressing is spot on. I'll see if I can't get a recipe out of dear old mom the next time I see her....in the meantime...give it a Google..I'll bet you'll find hundreds of ways to fix it.

I like lapilot's type of dressing...but when I eat a cucumber salad..it has just as many big onion rings in it as cucumber. If the onions are sweet, and the sour cream and vinegar plus sugar are right...oh man is that eatin'....

Miracle whip is a whipped salad dressing similar to mayo but it has a sweeter more vinegary taste.

Use mayo that's all I use and it's better.

When I have cucumbers I like mixing mayonannaise and ketchup 50/50 dipping the cucumbers in the mix. Absolutely delicious.

Your cucumbers are slightly different than most of them over here. You generally won't find a cucumber over here that is over 11-12 inches in length with the majority going between 8-10. The ones grown in Great Britain are generally the "burpless" varieties..and from what I've seen of them..they are quite a bit longer, but generally not quite as big in diameter. The cucumbers over here are mostly just over sized pickles...

Mayo - sour cream - apple vinegar - salt - pepper ñ garluc granular with sugar or honey to taste. Cover ñ chill well. Sometimes add a few red chile flakes.

Mayo ratio to sort cream is 3/4 to 1/4 ñ might not need milk added

Out of the garden just peel and slice cucumbers, some green onions and Kohlrabi, drizzle with Italian dressing. I like a little fresh ground pepper and a pinch of salt to taste. During the off season I use a sweet white onion and canned water chestnuts.

I just made this with Paul Newman's Golden Italian dressing. Very subtle, less vinegar and more creamy.

I must say I like the pickling cukes better. Have more crunch. Love those vidalia onions, too.
