This is a good easy, low cal recipe for those of us who need it!!! It is not quite like the one I remember my grandmother fixing when my sister and I stayed with my grandparents during part of WWII, but very close. Thanks Hugce

A wonderful salad! I followed your directions exactly using Grape Tomatoes. I let it marinate about 4 hours and it was so tasty. I love dishes you can make ahead of time and then just pop on the table. Thanks so much for sharing this, Hugce.

Nice salad. I appreciate that it has no oil in it. Splenda is not available here so I used regular sugar instead but only one teaspoon since we like it a little tart. I first heated the water, dissolved the sugar in it, added white balsamic vinegar and when it all had cooled down I poured it over the vegetables. Added just a pinch of salt. Very good!
Thanks for posting.

I really liked the addition of Dill to the receipe also. As fresh tomatoes are out of season where I live I used 1 can (drained of liquid) of diced tomatoes with jalepinos. Overall the flavor was great but it was pretty watery - maybe because I used canned tomatoes. When I make this again I will either reduce or eliminate the amount of water.

Loved the addition of the dill. I used red wine vinegar next time I will try the balsamic. Thanks for the recipe.

Just what I was looking for - Tomato, sweet onions and cukes all ready in the garden top this up with HOT weather and this recipe made a perfect side dish to my lamb chop dinner. I substituted the dressing with Italian - will make the salad again and try your dressing - sounds good Thanks Hugee for just the right salad recipe

This just didn't do it for me. It was kind of watery and way too sweet for me. It was just missing something. Not a bad salad but probably won't make it again. Sorry

This was a good salad. Very easy to put together. It uses no oil so it is very dietary. A nice way to use up all those extra tomatoes and cucumbers. Thanks for the recipe.

If you use balsamic vinegar this will be a nasty brown mess.
