Simple, light and refreshing. I like that it's not swimming in a heavy cream-based dressing. Loved fresh parsley. I used lemon juice and white vinegar to make the amount of lemon juice called for. Thanx for posting!

Being from Germany, it's nice to see a cucumber salad recipe here. We actually use white vinegar instead of lemon, but I liked this variation. I'll make it again. Thank you.

I often make Danish cuke salad with white vinegar but never tried lemon. I love it, from now on this is how I'll make them. I only made a tiny bowl to have as a side with my lunch salad. This is an easy recipe to cut back or even double. Thanks DeSouter for a new lovely taste with cucumbers.

so when I was 5 I had some Cucumber salad made my my great aunt who was German, and seeing how I have ton of cukes I was looking for something that wasn't pickles and thought to search for the salad. This recipe is wicked good ya'll! I did vinegar & lemon juice and cilantro because I didn't have parley. so dang yummy.. ate the whole bowl and then made more!

I made this for a German-themed Christmas party and it went over very well. I had forgotten to buy parsley, so I took another reviewer's cue and used cilantro, which worked out just fine. I used half lemon juice/ half apple cider vinegar (inspired by some of the reviews) and subbed agave nectar for the sugar. I added a small, thinly sliced onion. Thanks for posting this!

We love this. I found apple cider vinegar to be more pleasing to us than the lemon juice, and one day, when I didn't have parsley, I subbed cilantro, and it was even better. Refreshing, delicious, low cal, low fat!
