If you are not planning to eat the salad right away, or if you are planning to refrigerate it overnight, make sure you follow this step:
Before making the recipe above, season the sliced cucumbers with salt and place them in a colander sitting in a bowl in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to 1 hour. Allow the salt to draw out the excess moisture. Once the cucumbers have drained, discard the liquid and continue with the recipe.
