A co-worker was eating this dish one day and before we knew it, the whole office was hooked. It's light, refreshing and fat free.

Thank you Sandy for sharing this simple recipe. I love Cucumbers and usually fix them by adding salt pepper Johnny's Seasoning and a tablespoon or two of Rice Vinegar. Your recipe is a very refreshing alternative for me. The fresh squeezed lemon was just right the Chili powder was unexpected and nobody guessed the seasoning that made it so perfect. No adjustments necessary the recipe is perfect just the way it's written. I will use this a lot. Already have plans to take it to a BBQ this week end. Read More

This was just not for me. I had hoped to be pleasently surprised by what I thought was an odd combination but no... I tried to eat them but threw they out after a few. The lemon juice made the cukes way to tart and I don't know what the chili powder added. Sorry but I didn't like them at all and neither did the people at work that tried it out. Read More

I loved the fresh flavor of this salad. I had some cucumbers I wanted to make but didn't want a salad with mayonnaise or sour cream. I was excited to find this and hopeful due to the other hesitant reviewers who were pleasantly surprised. Add me as a fan of this salad! It was perfect for a warm summer evening. Read More

Quick easy refreshing salad. Would be good with a Mexican meal. Hubby even loved it! Since I was using local organic cukes (and not the grocery store cukes with the wax coating) I opted not to peel the cukes because there are nutrients and fiber in the peel. However I must say that it would have been better if I had peeled the cukes as directed. Read More

This took all of 5 minutes to make. I was hesitant like other reviewers about the chili powder but it ended up being pretty good! Read More

AWESOME! My husband & I LOVED these! I didn't include my kids because love isn't even a strong enough word for how much my kids liked these! 2 cucumbers wasn't enough for them but if I'd made enough to make them happy they'd have been sick! FANTASTIC recipe!!! THANKS SO MUCH for sharing!!! Read More

This is simple and nice. But I generally mix salt and chill powder and sprinkle over the top just befor serving thats also taste better. Or simply cut the cumcumbers and serve the salt and chill powder mixture on side. Read More
