Yea! 10 years ago I fell in love with the salads served in Bavaria, Germany where they had plates with separated mounds of marinated cucumber slices, shredded carrots or radishes, and French style green beans. I have been trying to duplicate the flavors ever since. This is it! I vary the ingredients according to which vegetable I'm marinating. Often, I omit all but the vinegar and sugar. I have noticed that some red wine vinegars are a lot more sour than others, though. I have had best results using Pompeii brand. Many, many thanks.
