      I've made this once so far because my hubby is Hungarian. I made as directed but had a similar recipe that directed me to julienne the cucumbers so I did that. The flavor was great but I will use a lot less oil next time as I believe it does not need it. Thanks for posting.

      Sharon this is delicious and made even better with my garden cucumbers, a 2 hour chilling time is a definate must for this, I reduced the salt to 1 teaspoon and increased the garlic powder to 1 teaspoon and omitted the paprika, thanks for sharing this great recipe!

      Very nice salad and a different take on the usual cucumber salads. I scaled the recipe back and initially started with less sugar, but then added the full amount as the salad did not seem overly sweet.
