These cucumber slices make a cool summer side dish dressed in a light, tangy vinegar and oil mixture seasoned with herbs. The refreshing salad is always a hit when served with cold sandwiches or grilled meat. -Mary Helen Hinson, Lamberton, North Carolina

I normally use Adrienne's Cucumber Salad recipe on this site for fresh cucumbers, but I have gotten tons of them this year, and I wanted to try something different. I really like the herbs and spices in this one. The only changes I made were to leave out the marjoram, as I didn't have any, and to add green pepper, green onion and fresh corn. You could probably use this marinade for any veggies you want. It's not overly sweet. Read More

We loved these- they are so great!! I only used 2 cucumbers but I used the dressing amount for 6 servings. They are tasty and so refreshing. My husband loved them too. It's also a very easy and inexpensive recipe. Read More

I loved these, and they are great to keep on hand in the fridge when you are craving a light snack. Alot of marinated cucumbers are to vinegary, but these are just right! Read More

great for using the abundance of garden cukes. I didn't have margoram on hand so used 1 tsp of dried Italian seasoning in place of the oregano and marjoram - it was still great. Read More

Exactly what I was hoping for! I used the full amount of dressing for 2 extra large cucumbers and it was perfect. I prefer the cucs to be cut paper thin. Great compliment to the spicy Carolina pork BBQ I made along with this. Thank you! Read More

These are the absolute best cukes. I'm not a big fan of them normally, but the marinade on these made them hard to resist (and I didn't). This is going to be a standard in our house. Not too vinegary, not too sugary, but a lot of flavor. Read More

It’s gardening season at my house so I used fresh herbs instead of dried, six cloves of fresh garlic, the juice of one fresh squeezed lemon, around ¼ tsp. fresh cracked black pepper, unfiltered cider vinegar, a good squirt (around three tsp.) Dijon mustard, and only ½ of an onion that was about the size of tennis ball. Since this was a marinade, I decided to throw it all into the blender and frapped it. I took two large burpless cucumbers from the garden. Washed and peeled them and cut the length to about 1” shorter than the height of a one quart canning jar and ran them through my French fry cutter with the ½” blade in it. I then filled the jar with only the solid cucumber sticks, the seedy insides went to the juicer. I gave the marinade one last spin in the blender and poured it over the cucumbers, leaving about ½” headspace, vacuum sealed the jar, gave it a good shake and into the fridge it went for two days. You just can’t beat the flavor of fresh ingredients when they are available. The flavor was fantastic and this recipe went into my “Keeper” folder. I later poured the excess marinade over cut tomatoes and cucumbers that were fresh picked from the garden. Yummy! Read More
