Cucumber Salad

Total time: 16 minutes , divided: 8 minutes,  wait 4-10 hours, 8 minutes
     Another summer classic, this is loosely based on my mother's recipe - which was her mother's.  She used cream, I use yogurt but the taste is surprisingly similar.  I can't be real specific here - I never measure and it depends on how big the cukes are, etc., so use as much lemon, oil, yogurt as you like.  This is an easy 'taste and adjust' salad.  Just play with it until you like it - you really can't screw it up (unless you try to hurry)
