In a large bowl, combine the cucumber slices, onion slices, and salt. Toss well and let sit for 30 minutes to allow the cucumbers to release some of their water.

Drain the cucumbers and onions in a colander, pressing out any excess liquid.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, milk, sugar, vinegar, and black pepper until smooth.

Fold the cucumber and onion mixture into the mayonnaise dressing until well coated.


Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight for best results. Serve chilled, garnished with fresh dill (optional).

Spicy Creamed Cucumber Slices: Add a pinch of cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes to the dressing for a spicy kick.


Sweet and Sour Creamed Cucumber Slices: Add 1 tablespoon of honey or maple syrup to the dressing for a sweet and sour flavor.

Herb Creamed Cucumber Slices: Add 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh herbs, such as parsley, basil, or chives, to the dressing for an extra burst of flavor.
