Delicious and very refreshing - not to mention light! I love rice wine vinegar! I didn't use the water, didn't see the need for it as the cucumbers produce enough water on their own when combined with salt plus rice wine vinegar is on the mild side. It really doesn't need to be diluted. I used regular salt vs. seasoned salt. This is a definite keeper.

Three stars as written for us. This was better the next day after the tang of the vinegar penetrated the cucumbers some, but it was quite watered down. Overall I like the idea and will make this again with only 1/2c water.

I made this as an alternative for the regular cucumber salad made with sour cream, as one of my guests has a dairy allergy. I was surprised at how much I liked it! A perfect lo cal / dairy free substitution to the regular cucumber salad! I too omitted the water - not sure why it is included and why so much. It was plenty liquid-y enough. I also used just 1 teas. of white sugar as I am allergic to artificial sweeteners. Thanks for the recipe!!

A refreshing salad...I used sugar in place of the Splenda and used only a splash of water instead of the recommended amount. It has plenty of liquid even without using the full amount of water.

Very addictive recipe! I only had red wine vinegar on hand but it delicious!

Perfect but without the water and used two tablespoons of white sugar... that's my tweak! :)

This was good. However, I agree with the other reviewers that the water is not needed- I added about 1/4 c and it was still very liquidy (if that's a word...). I was out of seasoning salt so I used a pinch of garlic salt instead. Also, I had rice vinegar (not rice wine vinegar) on hand so that's what I used. Great flavors and perfect for a summery salad.

It was cruchy and looked wonderful, but flavor was a bit watery... so drained off most of the watery liquid, added 1 TBLS of Sushi Vinegar (rice vinegar with sugar added) mixed and served about 2 hours later... Perfect flavor, everyone raved about how good it was.
