Crisp Marinated Cukes

THIS RECIPE is a favorite of mine not only because it's delicious, but because it was given to me by a very dear friend. I take this dish to many different gatherings and often, get requests for the recipe. It's a wonderful side dish, compatible with any meal. —Kathy Wallace Madison, Tennessee

    Very good. Made this for a cook out with my son and daughter-in-law and grandchildren. There was just enough with a little left over. Seemed a little sweet to me next time I make I will cult the sugar to 1/3 cup and see how that goes.

    This is a favorite cucumber recipe because it isn't so sour as some.

    This tastes just as good as the cucumber salad at our local restaurant. Love this salad. So refreshing on a hot summer day. Will definitely make again and again!

    These were good, crispy. I peeled them completely, and used a scant 1/2 cup of sugar. Good flavor.

    Not only would I make this recipe again but I will have to make it again! Each time I have someone over someone either asks for the recipe or they request I make it ahead of time. Home grown cucs help! Also, I have used green onions instead (because the white onions weren't ready yet.) Also good.
