chopped fresh parsley
chopped fresh dill
seedless cucumber, peeled and chopped
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!!!
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.
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.
I added chopped sweet onion and apple cider vinegar at a 1 to 3 ratio with the white vinegar. It was a hit!
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.
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!
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.
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!!!
