So fresh, so delicious! For best results let sit overnight, but honestly, I have made this and served it within an hour. I love to add super-thin sliced onions. Good either way!

Iand#039;ve been making this recipe for years. Only difference: red wine vinegar, double the sugar, no water, salt and pepper. Add red onion rings, julienned red peppers, cherry tomatoes halved. Yum!!!

Delicious, I used 1/2 the sugar and rice wine vinegar. You can add more cucumber to the dressing for the next day. I'll make this again. Janet VFE

Delicious! This dish reminds me of the traditional southern marinated cucumbers. I used small salad cukes and did add a little sliced sweet onion to the mix and used fresh parsley this time.....next time will try it with the dill. The dressing is wonderful! This refreshing salad will definitely be in my fridge all summer long!Volunteer Field Editor

We used small fresh cucumbers - unpeeled and followed the recipe ... They were wonderful -crisp and tangy... had to buy more small cucumbers to make another batch -might cut back on the sugar but why ???

Great salad for a hot summer day. Serve it next to tuna salad for a low-carb lunch.

Do not add water to this as the Cucumbers give off their own juice. Also plz peel them if not they are tough to eat. Also use apple cider vinagar, sugar, a bit of oil, salt, pepper and sliced onion. But just enough to coat. Finish with fresh Dill on top. Refridgerate then serve. Trust you will have enough juice with out the water. Good greif.
