Really good! My husband gave it 4 stars. For him, that is high praise!

This was delicious, but I think there's an error in the salt measurement. I put in only 1 tsp, and even with the salt reduced this much, the result actually tasted of salt, which dulled the brightness that I associate with cucumber salad. Next time, I'll cut that in half. I also added about a half of a mild, medium white onion, sliced very thin. With these changes, I'll definitely make this my go-to cucumber salad!
