"Typical Salad from the Ivory Coast!For a pretty presentation scored cucumber and zucchini with a fork, not peeled. Onions are nice placed in between the layers."
Serving Size: 1 (200 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"Used a mix of red wine vinegar and apple cider vinegar. Yum."
"Very tasty, vinegar gives it a nice kick while the sugar balances it all out. Delicious, I wouldn't change a thing!"
"Just excellent, fresh and delicious! I made this this today but only used zucchini and onion (my cucumbers had expired). I used 3 medium zucchini and doubled the sauce but only used 1/2 cup of water. I really like it!!!"
"Very good. I dont usually like cucumbers, but I liked this salad. My husband also says it is a keeper. Next time, I am considering adding a sliced tomato."
"I absolutely adored this sweet and spicy salad! I love zucchini (when I was a wee tot, I called 'em squeenies and begged for them often!) and cukes. Fantastic flavor from a few simple ingredients. I did sub red onion for the sweet as that's what I had to hand."
"Wow, what a delightful and refreshing salad. My husband and I both really enjoyed this dish. I was a little apprehensive about the amount of vinegar used (because I don't usually enjoy it in most dishes). But it really worked in this recipe (perhaps it was the addition of the sugar ??). With summer around the corner, I think we'll have this quite often. Thanks, Rita. Made for ZWT #7."
"Great recipe! Very easy to make and a great way to use up our garden's bounty of cucumbers and zucchini! I will be making this again!"
"Delicious! We loved this quick, easy, and tasty salad. I have an overabundance of zucchini and cucumbers from my garden and this is a fantastic way to use them up. I used seasoned rice wine vinegar instead of regular vinegar because I like the extra flavor it adds to salads. I thought that I would miss the oil that many cucumber salads have, but it was perfect without it. I did double the amount of red pepper because we do like it zingy. I will be making this salad frequently while my garden is going strong. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is definitely a keeper! *Made for ZWT4*"
"Great!! We loved this, will be making often!"
"Really liked this only thing I didn't used was zucchini, but I spiced it up with some habanero"
"love this and my guests devoured it. i recommend that you used one zucchini and one cucumber. definitely use onion."
"Delish! I make different versions of cucumber salad all the time because I love that they are low calorie but this was my first time adding zucchini and i LOVED it! Hubby did too. I added some yellow bell pepper strips to mine as well which were a great addition. Equally delicious on day two. I used Splenda which worked great. I will absolutely make this again."
"Rita another spectacular recipe, quick and really easy to make, with ingredients always in the fridge. I made this exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. The salad had great flavors, lovely textures and it was very refreshing and satisfying. Thank you so much for sharing this tasty treat."
"Made this last week. It was so good that I have been asked to make it again! The sweet and sour taste is what made this memorable. My little garden patch grows lots of zucchinis and cukes. I will be using this recipe often."
"This is a delicious salad. I loved it because it made a great side salad for lunch. My husband loved it because the longer it marinated, the more it tasted like pickles. Thanks for this wonderful recipe. Made for ZWT7."
"I made this for my husband. He liked it but said it was very spicy. Made for ZWT 7"
"This is pretty good but a little too sweet for me. I also think it could have stood to marinate overnight. Made for ZWT 7."
"Fast and easy summer salad that is oh so delicious! Tried this as a way to use veggies from our garden and loved it! Took one to work and everyone loved it too. Used a mandolin to cut very thin and let it drain a bit before mixing. Thank you for sharing!"
"LOVED it with some changes. I used red onion rather than sweet onion, and used red wine vinegar rather than plain vinegar. Used a TAD of salt (maybe 1/4t) and skipped the red pepper. THANKS for sharing!"
