"This is almost the exact recipe Mom used to make, I love this salad, she called it "Summer salad" I have it in my fridge in a quart bottle most of the time. I use it as a compliment in chopped salads. In order to make it prettier, she would run the prongs of a fork down tbe sides after peeling , before slicing. Kinda makes it special, and the cuke aborbs more flavor??thanks for sharing."

"I sub about 3/4 cup Splenda for the sugar, and find it's perfect. Have made this TOH recipe for years!"

"This is a very good recipe, however for my taste, I would not use as much sugar next time.

But I am definitely saving this one!"

"I am diabetic and thus was not thrilled about so much sugar in this recipe, but I love cucumber salads, so made it with some tweaks. I used 1/2 cup Splenda instead of 2 cups sugar and this sweetened it just right for my taste. I also added freshly ground pepper to taste. And I used a Vadalia onion. The 2nd time I made it, I added about 1/4 cup virgin olive oil and we liked it with that addition."

"Nice and cooling. I did change it a little. I didn't use the celery seed, as it gets in our teeth. I used white vinegar, about 1/3 cup, some water and some canola oil and cut down on the sugar, so it wasn't so sour, but still somewhat sweet. I did use a sweet onion chopped, which was good. I used a large hot house cucumber, which made lots and added to the salad without so many seeds, too. At another time, I may use light sour cream for the vinegar dressing. I do recommend this salad and your daily dose of good vegetables."

"I really tweaked this recipe as this was too much sugar/vinegar. It's basically a recipe that I have used for years, just different proportions. I have plenty of green peppers; I just wish my cucumbers would start producing! I'm in the mood for this salad."
