This is a simple recipe to have as a refreshing side dish. It's especially good for picnics, bar-b-ques, potlucks and buffets. If you like your slices on the tart side cut back on the sugar a little bit. Please note it will need to be chilled at least 3 hours.

This is one of my favorite ways to eat cucumbers and a major plus is that it's so fast and easy to make. Loved it!

These really were surprisingly delicious for such a simple recipe. After making one batch, and tasting them, I made two more. Splenda worked out fabulously as a sugar replacement.
