Very good cucumber salad - just what I needed to as a side dish for grilled chicken. I used white wine vinegar because it's a bit milder. I also used two cucumbers that I thinly sliced and didn't peel. Very simple and very good.

My great Grandmother made something similar. It's just the vinigar, sugar, salt, cucumbers + tomato and white onion. Let it set over night. It's so refreshing I can't stop eating it.

this was very good, but i thought the dressing could use some oil so i added a tablespoon of oil, i also added 1/2 cup diced tomato, and a couple thin onion slices, the dressing is something i will use again, it would be great on other salads as well, i will definately make this again, thank you, gotta go make more!!!

I added chopped sweet onion and apple cider vinegar at a 1 to 3 ratio with the white vinegar. It was a hit!

This recipe is great as it is. I agree that sliced onions and sliced tomatoes compliment the cucumbers in this dish. I prefer running a fork the length of the cucumber to cut the skin, then slicing into medallions.

This was ok, but the seasonings as is are not my cup of tea. The parsley was overpowering and so was the dill. I took the advice of another reviewer and used garlic salt (and omitted the salt) so as not to have that raw, bitter, garlic taste. I added sliced radishes and thin pieces of red onion as well. But all I could taste was parsley and dill....I would probably attempt again but just decrease the parsley by half and I think omitting the dill altogether. Mind you, it is a great, low-carb recipe though and it's nice not to have a 'heavy-mayo' type salad.

I was a little nervous to try this since I've never had anything like it before, but it was DELICIOUS! :) I'll definitely be making it again! Thanks!!!

For 2 cucumbers I substituted 1 tsp dried dill, 1 tsp garlic powder and dropped the parsley (since I didn't have any). Didn't have time to chill it 4 hrs, but it was amazing and delicious after 30m. There were no leftovers!
