"So easy, so good. I made it on Sunday & had some with lunch today. They are crunchy & crisp. Be sure to press the cukes as the recipe says to get excess water out, I dried the cukes after rinsing them. As suggested let them sit at least a couple of days Thanks Chia very good recipe"
"I like this at lot. I use white onion because I always had a cucumber and white onion salad as a kid. This has nice flavor and is a good thing to have to augment meals. "
"This was very quick and easy to make, very few ingredients, and was refreshing and delicious. It keeps well and gets better as it sits for a while. Very nice recipe, a keeper!"
"Simple, easy and very tasty. Made just as stated and used 1/2 teaspoon dill. The proportion vinegar-sugar was very well balanced, not too tangy, not too sweet. All in all a perfect recipe.
Thanks for posting."
"Simple and delicious! I put in the red onions even though I don't like raw ones. I'm glad I did, it wouldn't have been the same!"
"This turned out great even tho I messed it up and put 1 1/2 tsp. to much sugar in it! Thanks!"
"Thank you Chia for this recipe. My daughter eats the cucumber and my husband eats the onion. There was none left."
"Great recipe for cucumber salad. I don't care for Dill, so I left that out. Didn't have any red onion on hand, so I used yellow onion. It worked just fine. Otherwise, I made as directed. I fluted the cucumber edges and let it chill for a couple of hours. Thanks for the recipe!"
"Loved this! I particularly like the "salted cucumbers-draining them" thing! I can see me incorporating that technique into other recipes! Used the English variety cucumbers (long and come in plastic wrap), didn't have a red onion on hand so used a sweet onion instead. Very tasty. Can't wait to try this when I can get local cucumbers this summer! Thanks!"
"did not add any dill. was perfect"
"Scrumptious. I replaced the sugar with Splenda and otherwise followed the recipe as presented. This is one of my favorite combinations but the treatment of the cukes was new to me. This will be a regular with me. "
"Very good! DH (who has never been a fan of cucumber salads) ate it all up and asked for more. Thanks for the easy recipe!"
"This was perfect. The dill was a nice addition - subtle but sweet. I used Stevia rather than regular sugar and it was great!"
"My mother and grandmother made this and it's always been a family favorite. We add a lot of dill!"
"Exactly what I was looking for! I used splenda instead of sugar and omitted the dill. Very yummy! Thanks for a great recipe!"
"Chia, these are so good, My mom use to made them like this though she never added the dill. The dill is a nice addition. I did use splenda instead of sugar. DH loves these will be making them again have lots of fresh cuccumbers out of the garden."
"I made this to have with our dinner tonight but there's a real danger of having none to serve because I keep picking at it. It's so good, I just love the combination of flavors. I'll have to make it again to see how it ages...this will surely be gone today! Thanks Chia...great cukes!"
"This was so good. We,ll make it again."
"I add a little balsamic vinegar, not to much, as it will dscolor the cukes, I also add a pinch of dill weed"
