We really enjoyed this salad, so easy and such a refreshing crisp salad. I used apple cucumber and long cucumber as I had both on hand from the garden, everything else was as per recipe, although I think I could have added a little more dill as I didn't measure it. Sweet and tangy, crisp and delicious, and so simple to make.

Delicious! So unlike the cucumber salads we make but what a delightful cucumber salad it is. Have to agree it is a light refreshing easy salad! I used freshly picked cucumbers from the garden - so so good. This time of the year I could live on cucumber salad and garden vegetables. It's already seen to a rerun so into my family cookbook.

Fantastic salad,so crispy and fresh. I run out of dill weed, so I used dill seeds instead.

I love my salads and this was so good! I loved the addition of the dill, which gave it a whole new dimension. So refreshing and crunchy. Went great with my pork chops and applesauce. Thank you for another great twist on a new salad Patti! Linda

What a great side dish! I omitted the sugar (DH's preference). Loved all the fresh dill (and how quick this is) - definitely a winner.
