'I Hate Cucumbers!' Cucumber Salad Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 3)
Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2007
This recipe is similar to something we used to make at my uncle's deli, with the addition of sliced fresh tomatoes. When I attempted to make the dressing for this salad, the proportions didn't work to my liking, so I ended up discarding half the dressing and adding more mayonnaise to cut the strong vinegar taste and reduce the soupy consistency (and a tad more sugar!)... If you prefer the original proportions, I might also recommend trying a slightly more mild rice wine vinegar.

The red wine vinegar seemed over powering....and my husband still hates cucumbers!

I wasn't sure how to rate this, six girls had this for lunch and two really liked it while four did not care for. I do believe it had to do with the mayo.

This salad was very refreshing. I made a few changes though. I increased the sugar from 2 tsp to 3 Tbs. because it was very sour. I also substituted 6 oz. plain yogurt for the mayo, and I used about 2 Tbs of dill from a tube made by Gourmet Gardens (it has a much fresher taste than dried dill, but not as strong, so more is needed). I sliced the cucumbers using the side of my cheese grater and quickly sliced the cucumbers and onion very thinly. I omitted the celery. I'd definitely make this again, especially for a summer bbq.

This was okay. My mother used to make a similar recipe using sour cream instead of mayo. I think I'll try subbing that next time.
