This crisp and tangy salad from our Test Kitchen hits the spot on warm afternoons and evenings. Sprinkling the cucumbers with salt and letting them sit draws out excess water so they stay nice and crisp.
My mother always made this salad, so I tried it on my future husband when we were courting. I discovered later that he didn't like vinegar in his foods, but he learned to enjoy this salad and called it piccalilli.
This crisp and colorful salad is an ideal way to use up all that produce. “It’s so good on hot summer evenings," says NanCee Maynard of Box Elder, South Dakota. "I’ve even added chopped zucchini for variety.”
If you like the distinctive taste of feta cheese, you'll enjoy this crisp and refreshing cucumber medley, "Even our twin daughters ask me to make this speedy salad," reports Connie Lasko from Mistatim, Saskatchewan.
These cucumber slices make a cool summer side dish dressed in a light, tangy vinegar and oil mixture seasoned with herbs. The refreshing salad is always a hit when served with cold sandwiches or grilled meat.
