I did not care for this salad as written, but I liked the simple ingredients. Cut the pepper WAY down and the garlic powder WAY up. The salt and mayo proportions seemed fine. Everyone's taste is different, but I was even afraid to switch the pepper and garlic proportions, thinking it was mistyped. Just make to your own taste! Read More

Much better with onions sliced thin and only adding vinegar salt and pepper. But I bet the sugar would be a nice touch. Read More

I thought this was pretty good. The mayo was a nice twist as I would normally opt for sour cream. I've made this twice. The first time I followed the recipe exactly as written the second time I used white vingear in place of the mayo although I used only 1/4 cup. Vinegar and cucumbers seem to compliment each other perfectly and with the addition of the salt pepper and garlic powder well...it was just yum! I'll be making this recipe again...both ways.

Used a touch of powdered ranch dressing mix and added one small very thinly sliced red onion. Let it sit at least an hour and make sure to peel the cukes if you want a truly creamy cucumber salad (I didn't the first time but I will next time!). Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I didn't have enough mayonaise so I used light ranch dressing and seasoned pepper. Very good! Read More

My husband loves this recipe and says it is even better then what his Oma made when he was growing up. Follow the ingredients listed but alter the amounts according to your own taste buds (we prefer more garlic and less pepper). Read More

This salad was a great side dish for sunday night dinner. I served it with some more spicy pork and it was a great way to cool everything down. I thought the proportions for every thing except the salt were just right. I would use less salt next time and i think it would be perfect. Read More

I'm giving this a 4 based on the way I prepared it. I peel the cucumber cut it lenghtwise and scoop out the seeds. I then place them in a strainer with the sliced onions and sprinkle it with about a tablespoon of salt and mix it all together. Let it sit and drain for about an hour. After that mix in the mayo and season with pepper and garlic powder. Tastes like summer in a bowl!!!!! Read More
