Used 1/2 apple cider vinegar and 1/2 balsamic vinegar. Used dried dill weed and doubled both it and the pepper. Used only 1/2 the amount of required oil, and used olive. Halved the cucumber lengthwise, peeled and seeded it before slicing it. Subbed homegrown cubed kohlrabi for 1/2 of the cucumber. Increased the onion slightly and decreased the tomato a bit. When all done, I tasted it and added a touch more balsamic vinegar and some cubed avocado pieces. Refrigerated it several hours before serving. This was THE BEST cucumber-type salad I have ever made, and I am sure that it would be excellent as written. However, I would stick with my combo of vinegars. DO try this!!!

Good, but ordinary--nothing unique. I used olive oil rather than vegetable oil, and more dill than called for as well. I also added chunks of avocado for added interest. This is good for an idea when you're stumped for some kind of salad to make. Update, 2/09: This time I eliminated the sugar and the vinegar. Used olive oil and a good squeeze of fresh lemon juice instead. Now this I loved! Instead of tangy and sweet it was light and refreshing. A definite do-over!

Wonderful refreshing light salad! Perfect compliment to any meal. Just as good the second day.

Very refreshing and very good! I used a little more sugar, a little more dill and olive oil instead of veg. oil. You can easily adjust this vinaigrette to your tastes. I used one cucumber that I sliced very thin and next time I'd use an English cucumber. I used half the amount of red onion and sliced that thin as well. I let it set for an hour before serving.

I have made this several times now and it is always a hit. It is so light and refreshing...great on a hot summer day. I cut the unpeeled cucumbers in half lenghwise, then scoop out the seeds. Then I slice the cucumbers about a quarter inch thick. This makes a more interesting shape than regular slicing and removes the seeds. I also use about half of the olive oil. Thanks for a great recipie.

Actually we would give this a 4.5 rating. It is very tasty and easy. A pleasant side dish and a nice alternative to a lettuce or spinach salad. It is also one that can be made ahead of time. I followed others suggestions of: 1) marinated the cucumber and onion for many hours and added the tomatoes a few hours before serving. 2) Used apple cider vinegar instead of white vinegar 3) Used half the oil and used olive oil rather than vegetable oil. 4) Cut the cucumber in half legthwise, scooped out the seeds and then sliced in about 1/4 inch slices. A real keeper!!!

Great recipe. Very easy. Delicious with grilled chicken or steak.

This recipe is great. The first time I made it, the onion I had was really strong. So now I just check the strength of the onion and maybe use less if it is too hot or strong. This is so tasty, it is one of my family's favorites!
