I love cucumber and red onion together. I used more sugar and regular vinegar instead of the rice wine. I also threw in some dill for added flavor and they were delicious. Thanks Ann Read More

Light and refreshing. I loved the subtle not to vinegary taste. I served this with Yakitori (also found on allrecipes.com) and rice tonight. The longer it sits the more "pickled" it gets. Read More

I used white onion (I did not have a red onion) and doubled the sugar. After marinating for several hours the onion flavor was overpowering so I drained the liquid and added 2 more teaspoons of sugar to sweeten it up. I am going to put it on a sandwich with cream cheese tomatoes and avocado. Read More

Just what I was looking for. The salad was not too vinegary. I also added diced yellow pepper and halved cherry tomatoes and it came out delish! I will be making this again. Read More

This was a nice refreshing way to serve cucumbers. I only gave it a 4 because it is not a SUPER recipe. It is simple and good but nothing that makes it "extra". This is the way southerners make cucumber salad alot. I used white vinegar because that is what I had on hand and I also added some fresh chopped dill. This is a good recipe and it always goes over well with any meal during the hot summer months. Use onion as little or as much as you like red onions can be strong so you have to adjust to your personal taste. This is a good simple recipe that anyone can make. Read More

I love this salad! Instead of sour cream and milk I used a cup of fat free honey dijon salad dressing for extra flavor. I will make it again for sure. Read More
