Very tasty, vinegar gives it a nice kick while the sugar balances it all out. Delicious, I wouldn't change a thing!

Just excellent, fresh and delicious! I made this this today but only used zucchini and onion (my cucumbers had expired). I used 3 medium zucchini and doubled the sauce but only used 1/2 cup of water. I really like it!!!
