I love cucumber salads! This was delicious with being weighed down with fattening mayo or sour cream. I did use the optional sesame seeds, but I'm sure it would be just as good without them. I went right in the middle with the amount of sugar...... about 7 tbsps. I love your idea of adding radishes. Thanx for posting!
