  • “Fresh tasting and slight sweet. I let it marinate overnight. A nice change from my usual cucumber salad (white vinegar + water + salt + pepper).”

  • “This was a refreshing change from the normal dill cucumber salads.It is a delicate taste that still allows the taste of the actual cucumbers to be enjoyed rather than masking them in a sauce.They were really easy to make too.Made for PAC Spring 2009.”

  • “This was excellent -it doesn’t get any faster and easier than this; the combination of honey and apple cider vinegar turned out to be a great combination.I didn’t make any changes and I am very happy with the flavor.Not sure if I will even bother to leave it in the refrigerator for an hour, it tastes fine as it is right now!”

  • “We thought it was rather bland; maybe we’re conditioned to having cukes with dip too much….”

  • “I am normally not a great lover of cucumber but enjoyed this immensley. Sweet and very tasty.”

  • “0.1g fat is light in anyone’s reckoning!This was SO quick to prepare and it is a delicious – and very different – way to serve cucumbers.I’ll be making them like this again.I didn’t have any cider vinegar, so I made this with red wine vinegar and – influenced by the name – I added a generous sprinkling of sweet paprika and a few grindings of black pepper.I allowed an overnight mingling of flavours before serving this to friends for lunch today.Everyone loved it.The cucumbers released a lot of liquid overnight, and I’m going to add that to some stock I’m making tomorrow!Thanks, Bergy, for sharing this little gem of a recipe.”

  • “We love cukes, this was really tastey!!I’ve never made them like this before, but I will make them again!Thanks!”
