From: Francine Prince's New Jewish Cuisine A popular Hungarian Jewish salad, which goes with virtually any food. Its taste varies with the thinness of the cucumbers and onions. The think-slicing blade of the food processor gets the thinness just right within seconds. Health bonus: no fat or cholesterol! 1. Spread sliced cucumbers across tripled sheets of paper toweling. Cover with additional paper and press to remove excess liquid. Repeat procedure if necessary. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add onions.
2. In a measuring cup, combine and blend vinegar with lemon juice, minced dill, sugar, and cloves if desired. Pour over salad and stir. Let stand for at least 30 minutes before serving; or cover and chill several hours, stirring from time to time.
3. To serve, with slotted spoon transfer to a medium serving bowl. Sprinkle all over with salt; stir to combine Then top with sprinklings of paprika and pepper. Garnish with dill sprigs.
