I liked the recipe because it didn't require onions, and I wanted to also skip the vinegar. As the previous reviewer said, nice and tangy - actually a bit too tangy for us - so I added a touch of sweetener, which worked well with the dill. A nice, refreshing way to utilize all those summer cukes. I also did the salting and draining before assembling the salad - years of habit, I guess!

This was delicious. It is very strong on garlic flavor and very tangy because of the yogurt. We served it with shish kabobs and pita bread. I did cut the oil back to about 1/8 c. and it still turned out well. Also, I used lowfat instead of fat-free yogurt. It is good if you let the cucumbers drain after slicing for a little while before making the salad.
