Reviews for Cucumbers with Dressing
"My Mom has made this for years and I, of course, have made it for my family for the past 40 years. I also like adding thinly sliced onions. Sometimes I will also add diced fresh tomatoes. I sprinkle celery seed on top before serving. Daughter has for this just this week."
"My grandmother always made her cucumber salad with sour cream. When I saw this recipe using mayonnaise instead I just had to try it. I'm so glad I did! The dressing is similar to what I use to make coleslaw and pairs very nicely with the cool and fresh cucumbers. The only thing I did different was to add chopped onions. I'll surely be making this salad again for future picnics! Five stars for sure!"
"I make a similar version but use sour cream in place of mayonnaise - the way my mom taught me decades ago. Love this cool and refreshing way to enjoy cucumbers."
"The dressing lasts a little over a week if keep chilled. You can keep adding more sliced cucumbers over the next few days as they get eaten up....the taste just gets better as the cucumbers draw out their juice into the dressing. THIS SHOULD BE MADE AT LEAST 1 TO 2 HOURS AHEAD FOR BEST RESULTSI add a small to medium red onion, sliced, then cut slices in half and separate. I also add about 2 stalks of celery chopped & about 1 scant teaspoon of celery SEED. It improves both the flavor and the look of the salad.Dill is also good in this. However I do not use that most of the time.If I make this for a crowd, there is always a few people who want the recipe. So I keep a few copies of the recipe printed up."
"This recipe brings back great memories. I make the sauce similarly but add slices tomatoes and onions. I'd make a little more sauce to compensate however letting it sit overnight makes for the most delicious vegetable salad. Ideally I use fresh garden tomatoes from home or the farmers market but the sauce does wonders either way. The tomatoes and onions add so much flavor to the sauce you just can't get enough of it."
"Very good salad, I added shredded carrots to it. Made extra good"
"Kids and I inhaled this! Awesome."
"This was a good, light dish and quick to prepare. I think I would use a little less sugar next time, but we really enjoyed it."
"Yet another WINNER from TasteofHome. I also add a bit of dill weed. with mayo. mixture. This dish makes a mighty fine salad! K."
"I made this last night with the cucumbers from my garden. My husband loved it. thanks, Danette"
"I am not a mayonnaise person, so in place of the mayonnaise, I'll use either nonfat plain yogurt or light sour cream or Ranch dressing. I used 2 Tbsp. sugar, 2 Tbsp. CIDER vinegar, 1/4 tsp. pepper, 1 tsp. salt, 1 thinly sliced yellow or white onion and 4 cups thinly sliced unpeeled cucumbers. This adaptation made a verytasty cucumber salad! Thank you for this recipe! DELowenstein"
"Recipes don't get much easier than this! I used light mayonnaise and rice vinegar and it didn't seem to affect the taste. I also added pepper as some other reviewers did. I think that next time I may substitute Splenda to see how that affects the taste. I took this to a party without having tried it first and guests pretty much cleaned it up. It was tasty and refreshing and fairly healthy when the recipe is modified. This one's a keeper!!"
"I, personally, didn't get to eat this because I don't generally like cucumbers and I wasn't eating sugar at the time, but I will take another stab at it. I served it at a dinner party and I think only two people tried it so maybe it doesn't taste so good or maybe it tastes good but looks unappealing- not sure."
"My husband said this is very good and I agree. I did add more salt and a little pepper."
"I used white wine vinegar. My husband said it was the best cucumber dressing that he ever tasted!!!!"
"This is excelent!!!"
"I halved this recipe tonight as I only had one cucumber, What I wouldn't do for another cucumber to add to the mixture, it is so good. I will DEFINETLY be making this again as soon as I get some cucumbers. I did peel my cucumber though as dh doesn't like skins."
"Great recipe. I add a touch more salt and some pepper and my family loves it."
"I've had this before when I was a kid but had forgotten the recipe. Thanks!"
"Excellent!! I used apple cider vinegar."
