This was a great way to serve cucumber.
I id not let it marinade as long as required, as I had time constrants, I also drained off the vinegar mix as I needed to serve on a platter with salad, but it worked really well.
I had no paprika (which I thought I had on hand) so I just sprinkled with chopped chives and pepper.
The vinegar marinade gave such a wonderful sweet & sour taste to the cucumber. We liked this recipe very much here.
Thanks Lavender Lynn.

This turned out delicious! I used 1 big Japanese cucumber and added a sweet onion. I also added more garlic powder than called for. Very tasty!!
