This was quick, easy, and tasty. I had no complaints. I did change the servings to 1, with the calculate button, and got about 2 servings. The light flavoring reminds me of a Japanese flavored cucumber side dish. I did eat it after mixing well, just because I prefer cucumbers crisp.

It was too sweet and the soya sauce just didn't do it for me. I like mine much more tangy. I will not make this again.

Good flavor, but I had to double the dressing amount for half the number of English cucumbers... I don't know if this is because I sliced the 1 English cucumber very thin, or if, perhaps the English cucumbers we get around here are larger than available by the author... In any case, the flavor was good and it's definitely a "keeper" recipe!

This was really good. Next time I will try using sesame oil.

I really enjoyed this cucumber salad. It is a perfect recipe for summer - cool, refreshing, quick and easy. I substituted half sesame oil along with half vegetable oil. The dressing was just right - flavored but wasn't too much!

Wow! I added a couple of thinly sliced green onions. I thought about using sesame oil but opted for safflower. This was better than it sounded. Glad I tried it.

Delicious! I used 1/2 t sesame oil and 1 1/2 t vegetable oil. Otherwise i didn't change the recipe at all. I've also made this with cukes, zucchini and small cherry tomatoes. This is a great picnic or potluck dish.

My wife is super critical about her cucumber salad and thought this one was pretty good. I liked it a lot, and really loved how easy it was to make.
