  1. Combine cucumbers, tomatoes, onion, creamy salad dressing, sugar, salt, and black pepper in a salad bowl. If salad seems too sweet, add more salad dressing; if too tart, add more sugar. Chill before serving.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • My Grammy never used a recipe and didn't own measuring cups or spoons, so this is a rough estimate of what I usually use when I make this. You really have to just guess and check until you find the right combination. A nice way to cut down on the calories and fat is to use light salad dressing.

The recipe is great, but I used sour cream with a dash of vinegar. I learned that if you take out the seeds of the tomato and cucumbers the salad will last longer because of less water.

This is a very good basic Creamy Cucumber and Tomato Salad recipe. I love it just as is but sometimes I add a pinch of dill and a little celery salt. For some of those that say it gets to runny,...
