'I Hate Cucumbers!' Cucumber Salad

"My grandpa frequently sends me veggies from his garden, and the cucumbers always go bad! Though I've never cared for them much, this is an easy recipe that even I can enjoy. For more crunch, you may want to slice your veggies thicker."

This recipe is similar to something we used to make at my uncle's deli, with the addition of sliced fresh tomatoes. When I attempted to make the dressing for this salad, the proportions didn't w...

I ended up halving the vinegar (because I didn't have enough) and pretty much doubling the mayo (to make it creamier)and used celery seed instead of celery. Came out really good! Never would h...

This was a very briny salad, almost like eating pickle juice. The second time I made it, I decreased the vinegar substantially and increased the sugar and mayo -- much better. We deleted the cel...

As the other reviewer stated, my mom also makes this with sour cream and sugar to taste. (I like it sweet). It is really delicious.

I'm not crazy about cucumbers either, but I did like this. In order to get the mayonnaise thoroughly mixed, I will use a blender next time.
