Cucumber Salad

Cucumber Salad created by Bobtail

This recipe is from a former neighbor from another lifetime it seems like (24 years ago). I still see her infrequently, wish it was more often. This is easy and very good now that you can get homegrown cukes, which make a difference!!! However, it is great anytime of the year! Hope you enjoy!!! This is easily doubled, etc. Just adding that I have used red, yellow and orange bell peppers with great success, basically it depends on what I have on hand.

    Not healthy. We didn't like this. I reduced the sugar like many other reviewers. It was a waste of organic apple cider vinegar, I used baby cucumbers, no green pepper, & sea salt plus the rest of the ingredients. The cucumbers became wilted. No encore.

    Rave reviews by everyone who tried it. I used 1 1/2 c sugar and celery salt to taste as that's what I had on hand. Salad cukes from the garden which I halved and seeded. There was plenty of "juice" leftover so I saved it and after another visit to the garden made another batch the next day. I agree with the reviewer who said it tastes a lot like bread n butter pickles. Better even!

    This has become a summer favorite for our family! I usually omit the celery seeds and cut back a bit on the sugar. Its so easy! Thank you!

    Delicious! I made a few changes: I cut the sugar in half and felt it was plenty sweet enough. I used a red pepper and red onion and I threw in some bean sprouts just before serving. The colours were very pretty together. What a nice refreshing salad-crunchy and light! Not having oil in the dressing makes it low-fat too! Do not omit the celery seeds-they go so well with the cucumber!
