Took the advice of the one reviewer of this recipe. I added the pineapple and it was very good. Also it does't need the extra sugar. I diffently will make again. Will freeze extra zuchhini and make in the winter months. Read More

This recipe was just "okay." A good way to use up my overabundance of cucumbers though. Next time I think I'll add some crushed pineapple. Read More

I made 1/2 recipe with no changes. It was a hit all around! I was concerned about the dill pickle and used 2 "Clausen" spears; but it was GREAT and everyoneI loved it. Wish I could give it more than 5 stars!!! Read More
