    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. - 5/28/08

    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). - 7/3/08

    I have made this for many years. I do it a little different. I use equal parts water, vinegar & Splenda. And make sure there is enough to cover the cucumbers & onions. If you do Weight Watchers this is no points & it is crunchy & wonderful. - 5/27/08

    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. - 3/17/10
