Made exactly as written and it was perfect. So cool and fresh tasting. Will definitely make often with the summer cucumbers we will have.

This salad was prepared by me on 5/1/2019. I'd doubled the dressing ingredients, used 2 large cucumbers, red wine vinegar instead of white wine vinegar. I'd used regular vegetable oil as I'd had these ingredients on hand. This is a delicious and refreshing salad recipe!

Been making this for my husband since the recipe come out. Easy to make and he loves it.

Excellent and easy! I made the recipe with no substitutions for a work pot luck, and I also came home with an empty bowl. I'll definitely do this again!

Looks delicious! I love the idea of sesame oil. Did I miss something, Tracey? I don't see mayo OR sugar in the recipe.

EXCELLENT!! I didn't have white vinegar so I used Balsamic. No harm and certainly no foul! Lol. Cut the mayo to 3/4th of cup & sugar to 1/3rd (as a commentor recommended). It's chilling now, but it's great. My family won't eat so it's more for me! YAY! :-)

Read her description again, suefryray. It says, "I ALWAYS come home with an empty bowl!" It doesn't say NEVER. Sometimes people are too quick to be judgmental about the posted recipes and speak out before they know what they are talking about. Great salad Brynn Steckman :-)

If you never come home with an EMPTY bowl, it must not be that good. I am sure this is not what you meant to type in your description.
