Love cuke salad! We eat a ton. Made with stevia instead of sugar and threw in a couple extra onions. Yum! Made for FYC tag at FF&F
Cool, light and refreshing. The lightly tangy cucs with the little bit of onion were the perfect foil for meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Made for CQ4
Delicious and easy to make. Thank you for a great recipe.
Lovely and classic cucumber salad!
Great cucumber salad! There are so many variations of this salad from all over the world, and this is among the best! So easy to make and the balance of flavors is just right. I like that it has no dairy and therefore is lower cal. Thanks for posting! Made for CQ4.
