True Austrian version... NEW
by: Anonymous

Was interesting to read about onions and sometimes garlic being added. My mother, who was born in Austria never added these. She simply covered thinly sliced cucumber with a sprinkle of salt. Then after 30 mins, rinsed off the salt and covered with equal parts oil and vinegar, plus a teaspoon of sugar and a bit more salt if needed. Then covered and chilled in the fridge for at least 2 hours. The salad was always super cold and crispy.
