    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. - 2/22/13

    For a nice twist, I have also used flavored vinegars. Current favorite is roast garlic rice vinegar. I also now sometimes use stevia in place of sugar. - 5/27/12

    I never use sugar in cucumber salad. It tastes great with just vinegar, water, a little salt & pepper. Sometimes I skip the salt. - 4/21/13

    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! - 4/21/13

    The apple cider vinegar was awesome. BUMPS2 suggestion of adding cumin was surprisingly good! My mom would always make this with white vinegar and sugar growing up but I'm liking these sugarless options even better!!! - 4/21/13

    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 - 4/21/13

    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!

    My Grandma used to make this and it was served at family gatherings. Nobody ever put it on their plates, but people would just grab a cucumber slice or two until it was gone. - 8/2/11

    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! - 6/25/13
