I liked the recipe but everyone else thought it was just too sweet. I ended up bringing practically the whole thing home after attending a party=( Read More

This is a wonderful salad. I substituted red peppers for green ones and added mustard seeds and it was even better! Read More

My in-laws are in town and they LOVED this recipe. My husband loved it so much I had to make it again the next day. He came home last night with more cucumbers. I have a feeling this will become a regular in our househould. One change: I decided to take out some of the celery seed before adding the sauce to the cucumber mixture. It looked a little too seedy for me. It was surprisingly delicious. Read More

make the marinade and put in fridge until totally chilled. slice the veggies into ice water and put in fridge. when marinade is chilled drain veggies well. toss with marinade and chill for at least 12 hours. your cukes will not get mushy. the longer they stay in the marinade the better they taste.

These are delicious! I have made them twice and loved them. The second time I couldn't resist adding a little over a teaspoon of dill weed to the mix as I love it with cucumbers and it was good that way too. Read More

This was good a nice change in pace from classic cucumber salad. I reduced the sugar to one cup and more was defiantly not needed. This is a strong salad not for those who like mild flavors. Read More

YUMMY! Just like my momma made it. I would suggest maybe cutting the cukes into chunks. They do COMPLETELY wilt if left in the dressing over night. I think one could have fun experimenting with different veggies too. It's a keeper. Read More
