Excellent. This turned out so good. I made it the night before and let it marinate overnight cutting up the cucumbers and adding them about 20 minutes before. It's so tangy and the dressing would be AWESOME served on a salad. I had 3 people ask me for the recipe for this today when I served it at my sons birthday party. I used orange and yellow peppers instead of green because I love the flavor of them so much more. Read More

Made this for a holiday party. It was good but not as great as I expected. I let it set for 8 hours but I would recommend letting it set for longer. It didn't have as much of a 'kick' as I thought so next time I will add more cayenne. Read More

Today is the third time I have made this salad. Friends and family really like the light refreshing quality - especially when the weather is hot. I had a few unexpected guests for dinner today so to stretch the salad I added some fusilli pasta that I broke into small pieces before cooking. Not a morsel remained! Read More

DELICIOUS! Light refreshing and crisp. We like hot so we used a full teaspoon of the Cayene pepper. It was just right for us. Be advised though - the heat from the Cayenne tends to take a bit of time to really flavor the salad. If you are not sure how much heat you like add the recommended amount let it sit for 20 minutes and taste. We used 1 tablespoon of sugar and it was just right. Will be making this often. Next version will be to add some pasta! Great recipe! Read More

I really liked this recipe and so did my eight year old. I put the cucumbers in with everything else and let it sit a day. If making the recipe my way -take the seeds out of the cucumbers or it will water down your sauce. Read More
