This was very good, but don't marinate for more than 6 hours because the cukes get mushy!

I liked the recipe, but everyone else thought it was just too sweet. I ended up bringing practically the whole thing home after attending a party=(

This is a wonderful salad. I substituted red peppers for green ones and added mustard seeds and it was even better!

make the marinade and put in fridge until totally chilled. slice the veggies into ice water and put in fridge. when marinade is chilled, drain veggies well. toss with marinade, and chill for at least 12 hours. your cukes will not get mushy. the longer they stay in the marinade, the better they taste.

My in-laws are in town, and they LOVED this recipe. My husband loved it so much, I had to make it again the next day. He came home last night with more cucumbers. I have a feeling this will become a regular in our househould. One change: I decided to take out some of the celery seed before adding the sauce to the cucumber mixture. It looked a little too seedy for me. It was surprisingly delicious.

These are delicious! I have made them twice and loved them. The second time, I couldn't resist adding a little over a teaspoon of dill weed to the mix, as I love it with cucumbers, and it was good that way, too.

I left out the green pepper. Husband wanted more!

This was good, a nice change in pace from classic cucumber salad. I reduced the sugar to one cup, and more was defiantly not needed. This is a strong salad, not for those who like mild flavors.
