Reviews for Fresh Cucumber Salad
"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 ???"
"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."
"Suppose if you want candied cucumbers, this is yummy. Just realize each and every serving has over a tablespoon of sugar - you could eat half a Snickers and at least get some protein!!!!!!"
"This is a favorite. I usually slice cucumbers & soak in salted ice water overnight in the fridge before putting the recipe together. It keeps the cukes crisp."
"Try switching out the white vinegar with White Wine Vinegar. Makes a world of difference, still delicious either way. :)"
"These were ok but even though I tried to like them I really didn't think they had much taste. Lots of cucumber salads out there that are much better."
"Excellent and easy!"
"what an awesome way to use up a bunch of cukes - they were so good - we put them on our hamburgers - awesome"
"EXCELLANT! Can't get any better!"
"It is great. I made a huge batch, 1 gal, and it's lasted me almost a month. Still have a few rounds."
"I've done these not from your recipe but one from a tv show. VERY similar to yours but she adds a very small amount of flavorless oil and celery seed. I didn't add the celery seed. it is so good and fresh. great idea for a party too, thanks for sharing."
"Always a winner in the summertime."
"This was a great side addition to the barbecue we had at our cookout. I didn't have any left!"
"This is fabulous! easy to make. Keeps well for several days. Makes a great side for sloppy joes or other meat sandwiches."
"I actually found this recipe on allrecipes.com. I used some suggestions to replace 1/4 of the sugar with cider vinegar, dissolved the sugar in the vinegars in a saucepan over low heat, soaked the cucumbers in ice water for 30 minutes then drained, and used 2 tsp dried dill and 1 tsp dill seed instead of fresh dill. After 24 hours - disappointing. After 3 days - pretty good! After 6 days - my husband called his mother to tell her how good they were. After 7 days - the entire 1/2 gallon is gone."
"Excellent salad. It keeps good too. Perfect made with fresh garden cucumbers. For variety I add spanish onions. rating 100%"
