This is a quick and easy throw-together salad that is super tangy and creamy and a way to use up some of your fresh garden veggies. Very refreshing! Increase or decrease amount of vinegar and mayonnaise to your liking.

This is a good salad, but to prevent it from getting runny I always let the thin sliced cucumbers marinate in the vinegar (2 tbsp.) along with the salt and red onion for about an hour then drain it. I add the rest of the ingredients and let it chill for another hour. Read More

I was a little disappointed with this recipe. It was bland and after refrigerating for a few hours the dressing became quite runny. Read More

This was a delicious recipe! I used my food processer to slice everything, I used 1/2 mayo, 1/2 sour cream and added fresh dill. My husband and son had seconds, which says it all! Read More

This was really good. I usually don't like cucumber salads, but I loved this one. I added about 1/4 tsp. of sugar to the dressing and I didn't put the tomatoes in until I served it. This prevented the dressing from getting too runny. I also made it without the tomato and it was just as delicious! Read More

Yum I have been looking for this recipe. I love the creamy veggies at Dickies & have been trying to figure out what they use. This tastes just like it. I will add garlic & dill next time. Didn't have any onions so I might also add onion powder. You can really play with this one to suit your tastes. Read More

OMG!! This is the exact same salad my Grandma used to make. Thank you! I could never get the amounts right and this was perfect! However I did make some changes due to personal taste as well as what was on hand. I made a Quadruple batch so I used 4 large cukes 2 md white onions 5 Roma tomatoes 1 cup mayo 4 Tbl white vinegar 1 tsp salt 2 tsp pepper and 1 tsp minced garlic. I highly suggest that you whisk the dressing stuff first...then pour over the veggies and carefully stir. Otherwise it's not going to mix very well and it absolutely must sit for AT LEAST 1-2 hours before eating plus this is even better the next day as the flavors then have enough time to truly blend and set especially after the water is pulled from the tomatoes (which is what some people think is "runny" but that is actually your "dressing" so don't drain it! It has all your flavors in it!). I must say though you absolutely have to check/taste the cukes for wax if you buy from a grocery store. If you can't wash all the wax off then you must peel them completely or your salad will be extremely bitter. Read More

This recipe was quick easy and tasty. I used a yellow onion instead of a red one just because I did not have any red onions. Also I uses the Hellmann's mayo made with olive oil. I will defiantly make this again. Read More
