Love this recipe with rice dishes. Perfect blend of sweet and tartness. This needs to sit at least 6-8 hours to fully appreciate the flavors.

Pretty good but a little too sweet. I used 1/2 the sugar the recipe called for and I added in a little more vinegar.

Very nice salad! I thinly sliced the cucumber and added the salt. I let that set for about twenty minutes to let the cucumbers produce their own water. I added thin sliced red onion, cut the amount of sugar in half, used white wine vinegar, left the amount of dill the same and omitted the water. I chilled it for the time stated and it went great with grilled chicken. If you like this, you'll like "Dilly Cucumber Salad" from this site.

This salad was a great side dish with grilled salmon. I used rice vinegar and omitted the sugar entirely. Red onion also added some nice color.

This is a great way to use those garden cukes. I like adding 1/2 cup red bell pepper to the mixture but it's great as is. I love the taste of fresh dill but the dried dill really works best with this recipe as it's not so overwhelming. Very refreshing. IF you're going to reduce the sugar....reduce the vinegar, too. The cukes make plenty of their own liquid.

This recipe was TOO SWEET!! I'd cut back on the sugar at least half.

A little too sweet for my taste... next time I'll cut the sugar to 1/2 cup. I also added halved cherry tomatoes, they tasted wonderful with the onion and cucumber the next day!

I usually don't care for cucumbers in vinegar but this was the best. It has such a wonderful flavor and so sweet.
