Sue, you have a winner here! Made this for my 9/11 memorial dinner. The other vegtables added a nice contrast to the cucumbers. I doubled the recipe and subsitute Dijon mustard for the German, since it was what I had on hand. A great salad to make for potlucks or big dinners, such as the one I held. Thanks for posting!

Creamy and refreshing. The dressing was a hit. I love the dill, especially. There was a hint of tang from the German mustard and vinegar. Perfect! Danke. ~Made for ZWT6 Zee Zany Zesty Cookz~

I loved that this cucmber salad had extra veggies in it.... that made it stand apart from others. The creamy dill dressing was nice and tangy, and didn't make the salad too watery. Don't skip the German mustard! It's just right as a side for grilled meats in the summer. Thanx for sharing this!

Really excellent recipe! I had relatives visiting, and made to go alongside sandwiches for lunch. It was a huge hit. I substituted mayo for the sour cream and fresh cilantro for parsley, because those are what I had on hand. And I also left out the tomatoes because hubby is not a fan. I'll definitely be making this again and again.

The dill in this recipe was awesome. I don't think I would have put these veggies together if not for seeing this recipe, but it all was really good together. I loved the dressing. I upped the quantities a little because it didn't seem like there was enough to cover the veggies. Fortunately I didn't quite double the dressing amount because I didn't account for how much liquid gets released from the veggies, which thins out the sauce. I also used a little more mustard in proportion because I loved the mustard in this. I also used greek yogurt in place of the sour cream.

I loved the variety of other veggies in this cucumber salad. I thought the amount of dressing was just right, and it was nice and creamy. Next time I will leave out the German mustard, as it gave it a stronger flavor than I would have liked - perhaps it was the particular brand I used. Thanks, Sue L. Made for ZWT4.

Pretty, light, and tasty! I was expecting it to have a thicker dressing and thought about doubling it, but decided to obey the recipe. It turned out great! Reviewed for ZWT4.

I made a huge batch of this yesterday for a barbecue for 50! Schmect ganz gut! Everyone loved it and it was perfect for the unseasonably HOT weather we had here in Ljubljana. Not a bit left over. I made just as written except I omitted the tomato as I wasn't sure if it would hold all day. I also drained the cucumbers in a colander for a couple of hours and sqeezed out most of the moisture, again to make sure it held. Worked like a charm. The dressing was the perfect amount. Thanks so much Sue L for sharing this recipe.
