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

"These were ok but even though I tried to like them I really didn't think they had much taste. Lots of cucumber salads out there that are much better."

"I've done these not from your recipe but one from a tv show. VERY similar to yours but she adds a very small amount of flavorless oil and celery seed. I didn't add the celery seed. it is so good and fresh. great idea for a party too, thanks for sharing."

"I actually found this recipe on 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."
