I've made this for years, but use more vinegar (equal vinegar and water). Splenda works well. No salt or pepper ever added. This has been a staple in my family as long as I can remember! I like the suggestion to cut into cubes - this would then work well in salads. Submitted by:

Have always made this...We call it Dutch salad. Now I do use Splenda for the sweet and omit the salt. I like white vinegar for it and I weight the mixture down with a plate and keep it in the refrigerator for at least several hours or overnight before serving. A great accompaniment for any meal.

I have been making a variation and always have a batch on hand in the fridge. I peel alternating sections of 3 large cucumbers to leave some color and then slice very thin using a mandolin slicer- same with a large red onion. I put into a flatter type tupper ware with some low sodium salt, a couple Submitted by:

Old school. But I'd halve the sugar or leave it out all together. Red onion is nice too. Submitted by:

I keep a container of this in the fridg all the time when I have cukes on the vines in the garden. I make a new batch weekly with a sugar substitute instead of sugar. Agree that any vinegar can be used. Wonderful, cool virtually calorie and carb free side dish that goes with anything. Submitted by:

I made this last night with white vineger and I also used APRIVA for the suger. It cut out 16 calories per serving. So that would make this just about a freebe. Other than the carbs. But it does get us closer to our 5 fruits daily. Apriva is at FRED MEYERS next to the Splenda. Submitted by:

Yes, this is a staple in the South. I don't typically use sugar but I might try a little splenda next time. I use a mix between cider and white vinager and I like to add a few cloves of garlic in the jar and let the whole jar marinate for days. It is the BEST!!! Submitted by:

Great recipe. I use any kind of vinegar I have on hand. I have made this with white vinegar and white wine vinegar, and it is just as tasty. I also added salt and oregano to the marinade. I use the cucumber and onions in sandwiches, as well as a side dish to dinner. Submitted by:

I use Persian cukes, so I don't have to peel them. Also substitute Splenda for the sugar for lower cals. Final tweak is to add 1/4 tsp dill weed for a little perkiness. Submitted by:

Grew up eating this all the time! I also use Splenda (sugar sub.) and soak for a couple of days. I make a huge batch and eat on for days and days! (no salt ~ never have added it and never missed it). Submitted by:

Down South, we eat this all the time, minus the sugar. I am lazy so I leave the cuke skins on and dice the cukes/onions instead of slicing them. I also like to add grape tomatoes cut in half. Adds more taste and pretty color. BTW, any kind of vinegar can be used, even plain old white vinegar. Submitted by:
