A delicious and quick salad to serve with a spicy curry dish. The only change was to reduce it to serve 2. Something I will make again.

I used 2 cucumbers and 1/2 a red onion and honey instead of sugar. I thought it was really good but my husband thought it had a bit too much vinegar. I also made it about an hour ahead of time and kept in in the fridge until the rest of the meal. I will definately try this again but maybe try some other kind of vinegar next time.

Was looking for a great cucumber salad recipe to use up all the cucumbers and mint growing in my garden. This was great! I added some feta cheese that I saw in another recipe and it gave it just a bit more body and tang. Also substituted a mix of cider and balsamic vinegar for the white vinegar.

I had two cucumbers already cut up so I doubled the liquid but still used only one onion. I thought this was good but not great. I did like the mint but felt like something was missing. I think maybe it needed a little more sweetner for my taste. Still a nice addition to my lunch this week.

Such a great and simple recipe! It will be perfect for summer, but I couldn't wait :) The mint really adds such a nice unique touch.

This was fabulous. I'd been making a low-level variation of this for years; adding the onion and mint made a huge difference. I think I'll be living on this for the entire summer!
