    Baby Kato's Note:

    This is wonderful on a hot summer night. The flavours are amazing. The longer you marinade the salad the better it is...try to let it sit for 24 hours...You will not be disappointed.

      Very nice recipe. I used English cucumbers, left the peel on, scooped out the seeds and sliced them on my mandolin, along with the sweet onions. I also added the zest of the limes, as they are too expensive to just use the juice. Took it to our church pot luck where it was well received. :)

      Made yesterday and yum! I increased the sugar to 1 teaspoon and may go even a bit more on that the next time. I also peeled my cucumbers and cut them using a mandoline. So I would have some "kick" I added one dash of cayenne in addition to the hot pepper flakes, great! Thanks for posting, Baby Kato, this is a great recipe!

      This was very refreshing served next to a spicy pork chop. I love the flavors of this since I am not a big cucumber fan - but I love pickles! I will definitely be making this again as it is so easy.
