"This is a REFRESHING, tangy Salad--low in fat. If you want it creamy and not so low in fat, just add 2 tablespoons mayonnaise. Be sure to slice the cucumbers and onions very very thin! Serve as salad or top open faced sandwiches with it!"

    Everyone was talking about how important it was to slice cukes thinly. I used a mandolin to slice it and it was WAY WAY WAY too think. Use a knife. It also lacked somehting...I think it is called flavor. :(. Otherwise it was a decent recipe. I had too add a lot more of yogurt, lemon juice and stuff to get it to taste. Quite frankly I was shocked my family liked it -- thus the 4 stars :).

    Mandolin for slicing, or just cube the cukes, Greek non-fat yogurt, scallions, celery seeds can easily be substituted.

    Was trying to remember how my mom made this for summer picnics and holidays and I think this was pretty close or close enough! I think probably had more sour cream in it--but the way we eat now is much less fat-so I like the greek plain nonfat yogurt --I used swerve replacement even for sugar and I like the red onion-I think mom used white but red pretty --I often microwave the onion as I like less bite in my onion--makes it less strong. Dill great-too, Thank you

    Salad is lovely. This is all the stuff I put in cold beet borsch. I just dumped a large spoonful into a bowl of cold borsch. Delish.

    I can't use sour creme, so I skipped it. Yes, you need to get the water out of the cucumbers either by squeezing or using salt. I added tomatoes because they are in season and dill to the cucumbers and red onion. Yum!
