"Husband really liked this salad. Used 1 tablespoon of sugar instead of 2. Also used garden onions with green tops. Easy to make."

"try it with a package of Good Seasons Italian dressing mix. Don't follow directions, instead add it directly from package to your mix"

"This is my absolute favorite cucumber salad. Sometimes I prepare it just for me, but if my husband and sons are around I have stiff competition to get my share."
