"Great salad for a hot summer day. Serve it next to tuna salad for a low-carb lunch."

"Do not add water to this as the Cucumbers give off their own juice. Also plz peel them if not they are tough to eat. Also use apple cider vinagar, sugar, a bit of oil, salt, pepper and sliced onion. But just enough to coat. Finish with fresh Dill on top. Refridgerate then serve. Trust you will have enough juice with out the water. Good greif."

"Suppose if you want candied cucumbers, this is yummy. Just realize each and every serving has over a tablespoon of sugar - you could eat half a Snickers and at least get some protein!!!!!!"

"This is a favorite. I usually slice cucumbers & soak in salted ice water overnight in the fridge before putting the recipe together. It keeps the cukes crisp."

"Try switching out the white vinegar with White Wine Vinegar. Makes a world of difference, still delicious either way. :)"

"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."
