Strawberries and cucumbers together—I just love this combination! We used to eat a lot of cucumbers growing up in upstate New York. We'd get them, along with strawberries and melons, from fruit and veggie stands to make this sweet and tangy salad. —Melissa Mccabe, Long Beach, California
When you need a salad in a snap, nothing can top this recipe. It nicely slices kitchen time without sacrificing quality! I like to make this dish a lot in summer, and my family never complains!—Margery Richmond, Lacombe, Alberta
"Mother always made this refreshing salad when w had Sunday guests," relates Ruth Andrewson of Leavenworth, Washington. "It has a light, pleasant dressing and looks lovely served in a pretty glass bowl."
"When cousins visited from Russia, they made us a meal that included this wonderful vegetable salad," relates Rhonda Egler of Mooresville, Indiana. "Its refreshing flavor goes over well at family get-togethers."
"Crisp, garden-fresh cukes are always in season when we hold our family reunion...and they really shine in this simple salad," confirms Betsy Carlson from Rockford, Illinois. "The recipe can easily be expanded to make large quantities, too."
Here's a delicious way to enjoy garden-fresh cucumbers year-round. I got this recipe from a friend and made good use of it one year after my husband harvested a very large crop. Just defrost...and enjoy the crispy texture!
The sweet-and-sour dressing in this recipe is a nice change of pace from more traditional varieties. My nursing supervisor shared the recipe with me...and I'm glad she did!—Sue Dorrance, West Bend, Wisconsin
