Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Had a version of this often when growing up. No oil or sugar though, but with some chopped tomato & even avocado. It kind of makes it's own dressing. If there are leftovers, I add Barilla Pasta Plus the next day. It's good with Balsamic vinegar too! Submitted by:

Where is the sodium in this recipe coming from? According to the spark people recipe calculator, this recipe only has 2mg sodium.... not 292mg. Am I missing something? Submitted by:

It says salt-free herb blend.... any suggestions? can I make my own? Submitted by:

I liked the recipe but I reduced the fat to 1 tsp olive oil. The picture doesn't match the OFFICIAL recipe. The recipe is for PEELED cucumbers and the picture doesn't show that. I use my spiralizer and leave the peel also but I'm not the picture taker. Great year round. Submitted by:

I make this often and usually leave out the sugar and oil and adjust spices depending on what I'm serving it with! Goes well with anything. Also can add any salad vegetables you like! Refreshing side dish! Submitted by:

I'm having trouble figuring out where the 292 mg of sodium is coming from in this recipe. There is no sodium listed in the ingredients. Submitted by:

DH is diabetic, so substituted Splenda for the sugar. Nice addition to my cucumber repertoire. Submitted by:

I never use sugar in a cucumber salad. I like the tartness of the vinegar, red onion, salt & pepper. Submitted by:

I'm diabetic and left out the sugar and added 2 drops of natural stevia. I also used red wine vinegar. I also added tomato and dill weed. It was awesome, thanks for sharing! Submitted by:

Great, but used 1tbsp olive oil and used red wine vinegar with some fresh chopped oregano and basil, Used cracked black pepper instead of the salt. For a low fat/salt diet Submitted by:

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:

Very good, but just as good without the olive oil and much less calories. Submitted by:

I always make this minus the oil and sugar. Sometimes I add roma tomatoes if I have them. If you like pickles you will love this. 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:

have always like cucs in vinegar -- but have discovered rice vinegar (unseasoned) need very little sugar, I think!! 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:

I use sea salt, left off the sugar, less oil - delicious! Submitted by:

Love this old standby, but lower the oil and no sugar for me! 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:

I make a version of this, no oil,no sugar, any kind of onion you have around, add some dill, I use rice vinegar, YUM! 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:

Very simple and very tasty low fat salad. I replaced the oil with low fat Italian dressing. Submitted by:

Great recipe. I will use less oil next time and a bit less sugar but it was very good as is. Quick side dish or snack! 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 make something similar. i just slice my cukes with skin on and pour fat free italian dressing over them and refrigerate at least an hour before eating. great with lasagna. Submitted by:

Found it good, but to sweet. Next time didn't use sugar and replaced seasoned salt with sea salt. Worked great! 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:
