Very good and very easy! Doesn't get much better than that! I had these after about 4 hours marinating and they were just right. I added just a touch of olive oil. Served with a light pasta dish...yum!

Out of personal preference alone, I cut cucumber length wise, seeded and then sliced to make 1/2 inch "u" shaped pieces (it's a seed thing). Marinated overnight and put on a bed of lettuce, sprinkled with a little feta and sloshed a little marinade on top. I imagine putting into a lettuce leaf with feta would also have the same nummy effect.
If the regular balsamic is to strong, try white balsamic, it's not as serious (for lack of a better word). I got crazy and used coconut vinegar once, which is very mild, a tad sweet and doesn't taste like coconut at all. Call your lawyer....I've been messing with your recipe!!! LOL

Personally I found this very good. I was looking for something very easy to put together and with few ingredients. I doubled the recipe as an appetizer for four people (including three guys who eat 3000 calories a day). I had a few leftovers but my guests seemed to like it, though I have no ravings to report ;) Thanks for a good recipe.

I love balsamic vinegar and cumcumbers. This is a great waaaaay too easy recipe...and a great way to use those Classico Mason jars. I, too, shook it periodically. Didn't change a thing, either. Delicious!!

I am going to take off my 1 star review from 11/10/04 because I was expecting pickles out of this because I dont like cucumbers and didnt realize it until after I made it that this wasnt a pickle recipe. Blonde moment!

These were tasty and very easy to throw together. This was my first time using balsamic vinegar and I found that taste to be a little strong, but it didn't ruin the recipe for me and I'll give it another try using a little less vinegar. Thanks for posting!

This is great and I appreciate the fact that there is no oil in it! I'll be taking these along on a hike today.

Pretty tasty, although I think a little more lemon would have made it perfect. Maybe my lemon was too small. I will try this again!
