    I like to make this with the addition of diced tomatoes, and I use red wine vinegar instead of cider vinegar. Also, any left over liquid can be made into a great salad dressing (waste not, want not). - 5/23/08

    Delicious. No sugar needed and less oil. Seasoned salt was a nice twist. - 11/27/08

    Tasty, seemed like there was too much oil for the amount of cucumber so I will use less next time. Also wondering if the calorie count is less because there was so much oil in bottom of the bowl when finished. Wishful thinking! ;) Good for summer! - 6/4/08

    This was good. I didn't add the sugar but even my children commented on how sweet it was. It was sweet enough with just the apple cider vinegar. I also didn't have a red onion so just used a white one and that was fine. I added 1 avocado to it as well.

    This is so tasty! I would probably cut down a bit on the oil - maybe half the amount or perhaps only 2 tbsp - but then I LOVE vinegary things and don't need the oil to balance it out as much. I love this dish, though. - 5/23/08

    I made some for snacking on for the family. I put tomato in, probably twice the vinegar about 2 TBSP of a low fat italian type salad dressing and I put lots of seasoning in, extremely good! - 5/25/08

    I make this a lot during the summer but modify it. I don't add ANY oil plus I use Splenda instead of sugar. It is not quite the same as the oily version but still wonderful. - 8/21/08

    My grandfather used to make this when I was growing -- without any oil. We LOVED it. One summer, I pretty much lived on this and corn on the cob. :) - 5/23/08

    I've made this for years, but have never used the oil nor the sugar. I usually add a little fat-free sour cream or even fat-free, plain yogurt. My family and everyone I've served it to has always loved it. - 8/21/08

    If you leave out the olive oil and chill the salad, it gets very crucnchy. Nice! I also use just a little sugar (~1 tsp) sprinkled over the top. - 5/23/08
