Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

How can this have so many calories in it?....Sugar is the only thing significant amount of calories and even a third of a cup wouldn`t have 80 calories in it, or even 67 as the recipe says and its not even for the entire recipe, but per serving!....nuitritional value has got to be wrong!

My mother made this and never used sugar. The salt and vinegar usually brings out the water in the cucumbers and no added water is really needed. We also put tomatoes in it if we plan to eat it within a few hours. I prefer the sweetened version, but use stevia or honey instead of sugar. Submitted by:

I use much less vinegar (apple cider) than water and skip the sugar. I've been eating it this way since I was about four. Makes me think of Summer at my Grandmother's. This way the calories are incredibly low! Submitted by:

Something is wrong with the calorie count on this. If you look at the breakdown of ingredients and how many calories are in each serving for each ingredient, you only get 68 calories. Submitted by:

I always had them in my childhood. We used Malt vinegar in England. Now I use rice vinegar, no sodium, no sugar. It is a smooth taste and not bitter so no sugar is needed. I buy Hot house cukes I do prefer the skin to be on, it makes it crispy to eat. Pat in Maine. Submitted by:

try a little dill, traditionally, the tomatoes were salted and pressed under a heavy weight to remove the bitter juices. then rinsed and dressed with vinegar/lemon/lime. certainly not so much sugar.
what are the green leaves in the picture.

My mom made this for us as children, but without the sugar. Scallions are good in it too! Without the sugar, the calories are less than half!

The sugar sounds awful. Just vinegar and a bit of salt works fine. Or use ume plum vinegar, which is already salty, but go easy. Submitted by:

Instead of sugar, I add a little spicy brown mustard to the dressing. Maybe 1/2 to 1 tsp for the above amount of cucumbers. Submitted by:

I've made a variation of this recipe for about 42 years. Instead of sugar, I substitute w/Equal or Splenda & add caraway seed & celery seed. I've always made it and marinated this overnight to bring out the full flavor.

With the Sugar substitution, you save about 19 cal (3.33 calories per serving

I remember this from childhood, too. We never used the sugar, and it comes out just fine without.

And if you're Hungarian, don't forget the dash of paprika!

For DIABETICS you dont have to add sugar or salt. I squeezed a fresh Lemon or Lime over the salad. And if you like a little spice...white pepper, or cumin, or black pepper and maybe a dash of Red Pepper. Submitted by:
