  • Reviews

  • “In addition to the flavor, I really admire the nutritional analysis … unlike many other sweet and sour cucumber recipes, the sodium level here is quite reasonable, so this can be served to individuals on a restricted diet (low sodium, no added salt, AHA, etc.). In fact, with a little flavor loss, but much more flexibility, you can either refrigerate in individual portions, with individual amounts of salt, or you can let each diner add salt as appropriate …”

  • “My husband really enjoyed this salad. It is not too sweet or spicy. Thanks for the recipe.”

  • “Great summer salad. I served it with fish and found the sweet/sour dressing balanced nicely with the spice from the chili. A mandoline would be perfect for slicing the cucumber just so but you can do it by hand — it just takes a bit longer. “
