I have prepared a similar salad using sliced red onions, and thinly sliced tomatoes. This is very refreshing and great for meals in the upcoming summer heat.

I originally rated this 4 stars but my husband has been requesting it ever since and just gobbles it up!! I use 3 tbsp olive oil and 4 tbsp vinegar because I used large cucumbers. Also used just 1 tbsp sugar.

I love cucumber salads and this is very refreshing. I used much less sugar in mine for a tangier salad. Thanks for sharing.
