Cucumbers are my very favorite garden vegetable, so I use this recipe often. I got it from a friend 8 years ago. I've heard this refreshing dish keeps very well in the refrigerator, but it goes so fast around our house, I've never found out for myself. -Karen Ann Bland, Gove, Kansas

"Our worship teacher's wife loves this recipe. I reduce the sugar to 1/8 cup, use balsamic vinegar, organic mayo & leave out the green onions."

"I have made this dozens of times, usually 2 or 3 times per week during cucumber season. It is a family favorite. When I take it to potlucks, I usually get a request for the recipe. The only change I make is to use large onions, instead of the small green onions. We like the onions almost as much as the cucumbers. This makes plenty of dressing, so I use 5 or 6 cucumbers."

"This was really good. Fresh cukes from the garden made this a winner. They stayed crunchy. I used mayo, not Miracle Whip, since there was already sugar in it. The1996 annual says mayo or miracle whip, btw."
