I remember having a cucumber salad at a resturant a while back and I loved it, so I tried re-creating it with your recipe. It came out very nice, the only thing I did differently was to add a bit more sugar (well, in my case I used sugar sub) to balance out the salty taste a bit. Also, as the other reviewer mentioned, I did not peel or seed anything and it was still lovely. Too bad I ran out of sesame seeds because I am sure that would have made a wonderful addition! Thanks!!
