Zesty lemon zest, tasty dill, and a teensy bit of sugar all combine with cucumbers to make a super-duper tasty combo. The recipe says 4 servings, but I ate it all myself. Does not keep well, so only make as much as you will be eating right away.

This was delicious, but I made some modifications that made it even better I thought. I added chopped tomatoes, diced onions, and feta cheese crumbles which helped balance out the strong lemon flavor. Great summer salad! Read More

I first placed the peeled and diced cucumber in a dish sprinkled salt over them and left the dish in the frig for 20 minutes. Cucumbers have a lot of water so this helps bring out the juice. I then drained it before adding the mayonnaise dressing. I also added cherry tomatoes and FRESH dill weed. Just up the tablespoons to 3. Enjoy! Read More

I used reduced fat mayonnaise and Truvia instead of sugar for a little lighter salad. I also used fresh dill weed. Very good. Read More

I was attracted to this recipe because it is very similar to a dressing I use for cole slaw. I sliced the cucumbers instead of diced just a personal preference. Light and delicious will be making again. Read More

This was pretty good. I used it for a dressing for my salmon burgers. I added some chopped green onion as well. I thought the combination of the lemon and cucumber complimented my burger well. I served with a side of spicy sweet potato fries. Read More

Used more like 1/2 to 3/4c of low fat mayo....and also used Stevia (sugar substitute) instead of regular sugar.....loved the lemon-y zest and flavor! Also decreased the dried dill to a heaping 1 and 1/2 tspns. which was more than enough. Delicious and refeshing! Read More

nice receipe! English cucumbers are way to expensive for me so I just used Farm Market cucumbers. Since they were larger I added extra mayo and dill because I can't have enough dill! I also put in a touch of seasoned rice vinegar to balance the sweetness and smoked paprika. Thanks! Read More
