Two of us really liked the flavor and felt it was worth adjusting the recipe to tone down the vinegar. I think maybe half vinegar and half apple juice and then reduce or eliminate the sugar. The fresh ginger really makes the recipe. I gave it three stars because the vegies are a great combo and the recipe has potential to adjust according to personal tastes. Read More

Only change I made was using Splenda for the sugar otherwise followed the recipe to the letter. This is a really nice salad low in calories (and even lower with a sugar substitute) and in fat. Great for people watching their diet but delicious for those who aren't as well. Nice crunch with just the right complement of sweet-sour. Read More

Good salad. I made the dressing as the recipe instructed - it is light and tasty. I added coarsly sliced snow peas and sprinkled toasted seasame seeds on top of the cucumber/onion/pepper/carrot of the recipe. The salad is so colourful and lasts well. I made it to serve with Easter Dinner and I will make this again. Read More

This salad is amazing!!!! I just happened to have all ingredients on hand and decided to try this recipe. I am so glad I did. This a great change to the cucumber salad I make. Shredding the carrot was the only change(used one medium size carrot) I made. I only wish I would have found this recipe a lot sooner!! Folks go ahead and try it. You will love it. Thank you very much. Read More

Pretty good salad. I sliced the cucumbers and carrots really thin in the food processor and that had a nice effect. The ginger and seasoned vinegar came through quite well. A nice salad--a little different--for summer. Don't know yet how it tasted the second day yet. I doubled the recipe and had some left over. Will update. Update: The next day(s) it tasted very good still. Still had a crunch and the flavors really developed a little more. Will make again. Read More

East and very pretty. Served with Marinated Wild Salmon also from this site and brown rice. I had to use cilantro as I was out of green onions. A nice sub or addition if you have any on hand. I liked the vinegar but definitely reduce the quantity if you are sensitive to its strength. Read More

I grated the carrot and replaced the vegetable oil with sesame oil and this was great. Will most certainly make it over and over. Read More
