    I enjoyed this salad. I cut down considerably on the amount of oil used to suit a friend's dietary requirements and I don't think the salad suffered for it.

    This was pretty good, but as with many cucumber salads I found the ratio of dressing to cucumber was a bit off. The flavours were nice and it the poppy seeds were a nice touch. Good enough but not blown away.

    Great dish

    Have made several times already. The addition of the poppy seeds adds a pleasant crunch. New go-to cucumber salald the whole family loves.

    Love this salad. Young cousins eat it before dinner has hit the table. Big hit.

    This salad is very crunchy and tastes really fresh. I used medium cucumbers and didn't scoop out the flesh but would try it that way next time.

    Extremely refreshing salad. Even my kids love this one

    p 20 very simple - if using European cucumber, cut it lengthwise in half and remove seeds - then cut in slices - try Seductions of Rice method of salting cucumbers to remove excess water from cucumber.

    This is such a simple salad but transforms a cucumber into something exotic. I've made it several times and everyone loves it.
