A totally delicious way to serve cucumbers. I made as written, adding chilli flakes, oregano and some fresh chives. My homemade mayo was quite runny so I could have used less milk, but that wouldn't apply to everyone. Thanks so much for posting.

Well named recipe. It really is easy!! Good flavours and the little bits of chili flakes work wonderfully. I included about 1tsp each of the basil and oregano. Only think I'd watch next time is probably not to use the full amount of milk as it did dilute the Mayo I used and made it quite thin, however this didn't impact on the great taste. Made for Aussie / Kiwi Swap April 2013.

This is such a treat. I used the basil, oregano, salt and lots of black pepper. I also opted for red onion. This recipe is like a taste of summer during a cold spring!

I loved this salad. I'll do it very often this summer with fresh cucumbers. I used red pepper flakes, dried basil and oregano. And a little bit of red onion. Thanks Chef1Mom :) Made for the Australian Swap for March 2011

I really liked the flavour and freshness of this salad. Very easy to put together too. It's always a bonus when you can make something ahead of time. I've never had cucumbers with a cream dressing before, and I'm not sure how I feel about it. Connie, I think it's one of those 'texture' issues. :) I'll have to try it again with maybe less mayo. Honoured to make this as a "Thank You" for voting for Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia in the 2010 Kraft Hockeyville Competition.

This really is Sooooo Easy! Great flavours and so creamy! I followed recipe nearly exactly. I left out the chilli flakes and added a few chopped chives, but that was the only change. Next time I will slice cucumber a little thicker as I think I sliced it too thinly. I also made a mistake and diced the onions, and half way through dicing I remembered I should be slicing them instead, so I used both diced and sliced red onions,,, lol This is such a great recipe and the taste is so wonderful, especially if you like cucumbers and mayo! Perfect for a hot summers day. And with summer here, I will be making this again. Thanks Chef1MOM~Connie for such a great recipe.

Cucumbers are one of my top 5 favorite "foods" of all time. Second, would be mayonnaise, third would crushed red pepper flakes, and fourth, I found *THIS* recipe. A recipe from heaven, sent right down the farm lane, up on the porch, and right into our stomachs. I followed this exactly, and served the cucumbers perched happily atop fresh red tomatoes, thinly sliced onion, and small fresh spinach leaves. Yes......Virginia...there is a Santa Claus.....Made for *Aussie New Zealand Recipe Swap* November 2009

Like Gayla, I have a similar recipe to this (I think everyone does!), but this was good, too. :) I definitely like the richness of the milk/mayo versus my sour cream/vinegar and the choice of herbs was lovely. I made it with about half a teaspoon each of the basil and oregano, though I would probably double that as the parts that had herb in it tasted soooo good! I did leave out the pepper flakes for my kids' sake, but dashed some on at serving for DH and I. Thank you for posting, made for ZWT5, for the Groovy GastroGnomes.

This is very similar to my recipe that I usually use but the addition of basil and pepper flakes is a good one. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for ZWT5 for Hell's Kitchen Angels.

I had two cucumbers I needed to use up. I followed the recipe as written but didn't add any of the optional ingredients. Made for ZWT5.
