"Like others here I've been making this salad for years. I also agree that it is way too much sugar!"
"Like halfthere I have been making this for years, I am 73. I have never used that much sugar, ever. This is a recipe you make to taste. I also add a bit of oil first, then sugar, cider vinager then cracked pepper and salt, adjusting sugar as you go, no problem. Also add fresh dill, just beautiful. The dill complements the entire dish.then serve or let it set chilled in fridge. Yummy!!!! Oh by the way, never green pepper, too much, and thinly slice the onion in rings, not chopped. I got this recipe from my Bubbie, must be over 100 yrs old."
"This is a recipe I have made for many years, however I have never used that quantity of sugar. Cutting the sugar way down and letting it sit for a few hours, and it is perfection. I think the celery seeds could go also. It is just as good without them. A wonderful useful recipe."
"Perfect salad for a potluck. I have made many times,didn't change a thing."
"I did this along with other veggie recipes with baked salmon. This recipe is a keeper, it's delicious, would recommend it to anyone."
