This salad is very good. After I chopped the avocado I soaked it in lemon juice for 5 minutes then added to the salad as I knew I wouldn't eat all the salad in one day. Very good flavors and the cucumbers were still crunchy the next day. Will add it to one of my favorite salads. Read More

Just okay for me. I wished as I was making it that I had fresh dill since dried tastes completely different but I REALLY wished as I was eating it that I had left out the sugar all together. It just made the cucs taste like sweet pickles. I ended up just eating the avocado out of the salad and leaving the rest. Not sure why there are so many steps either...just mix and serve. Read More

This was great! First time I use avacados other than in quacamole salad or garnish. Nice sweet/tangy flavor. I didn't have red wine vinegar so I used an italian vinagarette and used 2 full teaspoons of dill weed in place of fresh dill. Read More

this was ABSOLUTELY delicious! Make sure avocados are not too mushy bc this salad runs the risk of becoming mushy. Also I used garlic powder as I didn't have garlic and that worked fine! a keeper! Read More

Wow I was surprised at how good this is. The avocado gave this a creaminess that I really liked taking marinated cucumber/onion salad to another level. Really good. I will serve this again. Thanks for the great salad! Read More

Really delicious! I added cherry tomatoes like one of the pictures had- it didn't add tons of flavor but the color really popped. I also didn't bother draining the mixture before adding the vinegar and saw no issues. The whole family including the almost 3 year old loved it! Read More
