This recipe is the reason we plant cucumbers each summer. It's wonderful and not what you'd expect. I like to use lemon pepper in it. Read More

Tried these twice hoping the second time we would like them a little better but we didn't. No pizazz and cukes are kinda bland so they need something extra. Read More

This was an awesome recipe i wasn't sure if i would like it or not at first but once i threw everything together it worked out. I personally liked it a little bit more with a little extra lemon and vinegar just to give it more flavor. I used italian seasoning in place of the celery seed which really gave it a great colorful look and it gave it a good flavor as well. I didn't have any celery seed so i threw some sesame seed into it instead. Just a warning to everyone.........It is much better if you let it sit for four hours then if you go and eat it immediately otherwise it is bland. Read More

Made as written. A good change for cucumbers. Great as a side for sandwiches instead of potato chips. Read More

Only change made was that I peeled and seeded the cukes (that's the way that we like them). Good recipe but a little heavy in the celery seed. Will make again but with 1 tsp of the celery seed. Read More
