Cooler Than A Cucumber Salad

Rated as 4.57 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe may be simple but its flavor is big and juicy. I think it would be fabulous alongside spicy Asian curries, quick stir-fries, herb-roasted dinners -- and yes, it would be perfect for picnics. This is a delicious make-ahead picnic salad. Make more than you think you'll need, because you just might want some for breakfast."

A nice refreshing summer salad. The longer this recipe can marinade, the better it gets. The flavors of this salad come together really well. Thanks Pinkmonkey19 for sharing.

Delicious! I had a champagne pear vinegar on hand I used. Definitely leave time for e salad to sit in the marinade, overnight if you can. Extremely easy to make and very tasty to boot. Will defi...
