Good, but ordinary--nothing unique. I used olive oil rather than vegetable oil, and more dill than called for as well. I also added chunks of avocado for added interest. This is good for an idea when you're stumped for some kind of salad to make. Update, 2/09: This time I eliminated the sugar and the vinegar. Used olive oil and a good squeeze of fresh lemon juice instead. Now this I loved! Instead of tangy and sweet it was light and refreshing. A definite do-over!



Used 1/2 apple cider vinegar and 1/2 balsamic vinegar. Used dried dill weed and doubled both it and the pepper. Used only 1/2 the amount of required oil, and used olive. Halved the cucumber lengthwise, peeled and seeded it before slicing it. Subbed homegrown cubed kohlrabi for 1/2 of the cucumber. Increased the onion slightly and decreased the tomato a bit. When all done, I tasted it and added a touch more balsamic vinegar and some cubed avocado pieces. Refrigerated it several hours before serving. This was THE BEST cucumber-type salad I have ever made, and I am sure that it would be excellent as written. However, I would stick with my combo of vinegars. DO try this!!!



Wonderful refreshing light salad! Perfect compliment to any meal. Just as good the second day.
