Crisp, garden-fresh cukes are always in season when we hold our family reunion, and they really shine in this simple cucumber salad. The recipe can easily be expanded to make large quantities, too. —Betsy Carlson, Rockford, Illinois

"This was a great side addition to the barbecue we had at our cookout. I didn't have any left!"

"This is fabulous! Easy to make. Keeps well for several days. Makes a great side for sloppy joes or other meat sandwiches."

"I actually found this recipe on allrecipes.com. I used some suggestions to replace 1/4 of the sugar with cider vinegar, dissolved the sugar in the vinegars in a saucepan over low heat, soaked the cucumbers in ice water for 30 minutes then drained, and used 2 tsp dried dill and 1 tsp dill seed instead of fresh dill. After 24 hours - disappointing. After 3 days - pretty good! After 6 days - my husband called his mother to tell her how good they were. After 7 days - the entire 1/2 gallon is gone."
