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.

This was fantastic!! I have this type of salad always on hand, but have always used white vinegar. This is my new staple!! Thank you!

Very very tasty. I used fresh grown cucumbers only I left a thin strip of peel on them for some color and followed the recipe exactly. We really enjoyed the dill in the dish. Definately will make again. Made for Zaar Alphabet Soup tag game.
