    A great way to use those garden cucumbers. Very tasty. I refrigerated mine a couple of days before eating for better flavor. I keep them in a quart jar in the refrigerator, the longer they sit the better they get!

    This is almost the exact recipe Mom used to make, I love this salad, she called it "Summer Salad" I have it in my fridge in a quart bottle most of the time. I use it as a compliment in chopped salads. In order to make it prettier, she would run the prongs of a fork down tbe sides after peeling , before slicing. Kinda makes it special, and the cuke aborbs more flavor??thanks for sharing.

    This is just like the recipe my mom used. If my husband loves them, it deserves 5 stars. ;-)

    I sub about 3/4 cup Splenda for the sugar, and find it's perfect. Have made this TOH recipe for years!

    This is a very good recipe, however for my taste, I would not use as much sugar next time.But I am definitely saving this one!
