I love this recipe. I usually salt the cucumber first and refrigerate. Then at end I sometimes add fresh dill for a little leafy green nutrition and if eating it with meat, I leave out the olive oil for less fat : ) Submitted by:

I make a version if this, but leave out the oil to cut calories and add a diced jalapeno pepper for kick. I put it in a tupper ware and have instant salad for days. Submitted by:

This is wonderful, cool, tasty stuff in the summertime. My mom made this when I was a kid and I have always loved the sweet and sour taste. I have substituted Splenda for half of the sugar in bigger batches and it works fine. Submitted by:

I make this pretty often! I take out the olive oil, use Splenda instead of sugar, add fresh squeezed lemon juice, add 1tbsp of water to cut down on the "tang", add Badia Complete Sesoning, parsley, and my secret: RAISINS! Delicious! Submitted by:

Thanks for posting this, I have been searching for cucumber salad. Did you ever try this with umeboshi plum vinegar? When using it, you get a great flavor and it adds the salt or briney taste. Submitted by:

This salad is a staple for me as I have it @ least 3 times per week. I use 2-3 peeled cucumbers, rock salt, fresh black pepper, light sugar suplemented w/ Stevia, only 1 tbsp of lighter flavor EVOO, tons of red wine vinegar & a dash of apple cider vinegar. Submitted by:

Sounds good. I also make cucumber salad with Nagano brand seasoned rice vinegar instead of the olive oil, cider vinegar, and sugar, and it has a nice sweet tart flavor. Submitted by:

This was good but I did use less oil like someone said. This does need a little something extra though, I may try adding tomatoes to it next time.

Has anyone added this to their nutrition tracker? When I do, it comes up as a Banquet meal (thats 600+ calories!) ?!

This one tasted good, but I think I'm spoiled by my Mom's cucumber salad. Very similar, but the cucumbers get added flavor by being soaked in salt water for a few hours, and there is no olive oil. This has a milder flavor than what I'm used to, but still good! I like the addition of cider vinegar Submitted by:

Awesome, delicious, simple and quick salad. I agree with comments that this can be made with no oil or much less oil and sugar or sweetener is optional. I made this recipe exactly as written but used white vinegar instead of cider vinegar. I also dusted with black pepper. YUMMMMEEE. Submitted by:

I make something similar with red wine vinegar, sliced cucumber and finely sliced white onion. I don't like the taste of the oil in it so leave it out and normally add less than half a teaspoon of sugar as I prefer mine tart. Submitted by:

I love, love cucumber salad. Never added sugar. I would think that if you use Apple Cider vinegar, it is sweet enough. Like another commentator, I use wine vinegar, and also add 1/2 t Dijon mustard.
I meant to give it 4 stars, but it stopped at 2. ???

Even better when you brine the cucumbers in salt water for a half hour first! Then no oil at all is needed. Submitted by:

Very good. And I think easier than using just vinegar and sugar. Reminds me of how my mom used to put Italian salad dressing on hers....but this is better due to using olive oil. Submitted by:
