Great recipe....I have made this several times and always asked to pass the recipe on! I add an onion to it as my grandmother made something similar with onions too.

Nothing better than a cucumber salad on a hot day and this one is very good. I added extra dill but otherwise followed your recipe. Thank you.

I have been making this ever since I found this recipe. Cool and refreshing. Tastes even better with home grown cucumbers. This is the only recipe I need! Thanks!!!!
