I love this recipe, as it can be made early in the day and also it is easy to make last minute.  It's just a great fresh salad for a picnic or BBQ in the summer!
I have made the salad with a knife and sliced the cucumber and onion.  Using the slicing set I have, makes the world of difference!  First, it's easier and secondly it slices the cucumber so thin that it seems to make the cucumber go farther and seem like a bigger salad because you get far more slices.  If you don't use something like this, I find I need to use 2 cucumbers in the recipe.
