I didn't like the way the dressing thinned out from the liquid from the cucumber. I would sprinkle the cucumber slices with salt and let them sit on a paper towel for a little while to draw out the extra moisture. Then finish the recipe adding a little extra salt if needed. I also finished it off with some white pepper. Read More

A lot of you have commented about this recipe being too runny, but that's just how my grandmother made it and we used a slotted spoon when serving. However, if you would like the mixture to be thicker just blot the moisture out of the cucumbers using a paper towel before mixing them into the sauce. Thanks to all of you who posted positive reviews. I am glad all of you are enjoying this recipe as much as my family has over the last 100 years. Read More

This is my favourite dressing for cucumber salad! One thing I love is that you don't really need to measure anything just put it all together until it tastes how you like it! I always add pepper and dill to it as well! Read More

I love this stuff. My mom made me a jar of it last summer and now it is a staple in my fridge anytime I get cukes! It is a thin dressing, but I shake before pouring. I love it alone or over a green salad. Also I dice my cukes into small pieces. Yummy!! So glad I found the recipe again!! Read More

I liked it I found it way too sweet so I added lots of garlic powder Basil Mrs. Dash. Next time I will use half the sugar asked for but other than that it was great love the idea I can make it instead of buying tyvm. Read More
