I was intrigued was the ingredients when I saw this recipe and just had to try it. Followed instructions exactly and produced a most interesting cucumber salad. It was sweet and refreshing and tasted almost like bread and butter pickles. The next time I make it, I will cut down on the water, sugar, and vinegar (at least in half) as I felt the salad had way to much liquid.
I'm sorry to say but we did not like the dressing at all. Boiling the dressing seemed to spoil its taste completely. I'm sorry but I will not be making it again.
Absolutely Delscious and perfect accompanyment to almost anything that is served in the summer. This was on our table almost everyday during the summer when I was growing up. So very, very, refreshing! Thanks for posting!
I made this today and my DH and I loved it! Thank you for posting it!
Just loved it, Norell! My mother made a simliar dish often in the summer when I was a kid. She didn't add sugar, however, and I didn't care for the strong vinegar presence. Several years ago I discovered you could add sugar, and what a difference it makes! I have never added green pepper, though, and really enjoyed its addition in your recipe. Also used a Vidalia onion. Just delicious, and lasts a long time in the fridge. Thanks for posting the recipe!
Made this for father's day, I liked but the kid's dad did not.I used red onion and added some halved cherry tomatoes. I cut back on the dressing as suggestedd by the other posts. It was really good. I will definitely make this again.
I made this great salad for a potluck. I made a BIG batch version. Yes, it was very "liquidy". But by the end of the potluck, the salad had been completely eaten, even though only half of the people expected showed up. Again, it has lots of liquid, but it sure is tasty! Just use a serving spoon w/holes. I made mine with Splenda, no dill, no pepper, and with vidalia sweet onion as opposed to a regular onion. I also soaked the freshly sliced onion and cukes in saltwater for a while and then rinsed them to get rid of some of the natural bitter and strong tastes. Then I added a little salt to the finished salad.
