    Lovely summer salad. i made it with purple onion and it was fantastic. So nice and cool. i did however only use 2 T. of olive oil and 3 T of sugar. Turned out perfect. Such a good way to use those extra cucumbers. Thanks for the recipe, Aric!

    Sorry, but this seems disgusting, taking healthy vegetables and drowning them in sugar. There are healthier versions: A medium to a large tomato, same amount of cucumber, half an onion, diced, salt and olive oil. This is the base, and you can continue playing with it: add white cheese crumbs, diced pepper, baked pepper (peeled, sliced) olives...

    Very good recipe that was well liked by all adults. Kids missed out. I left out onions per my taste. Next time would halve the dressing ingredients, and use just a pinch of sugar. Think I would have preferred it to be less sweet. Still, a great recipe!

    This is so refreshing! I cut the veggies down to about 1/3, and used 1.5 tbsp of olive oil, 1 tbsp of red wine vinegar and 2 tsp of sugar. It was just enough to cover everything, but not have a lot sitting in the bottom of the bowl.

    Wonderful and light salad, perfect for the summertime to offset a mayo-laiden salad! The only thing I did different was half the amount of sugar, oil and vinegar. Even halfed there was still PLENTY of extra dressing. Thanks!
