Cukes and Carrots Recipe

Carrots and green peppers bring extra color and crunch to this refreshing cucumber salad from Karla Hecht, Plymouth, Minnesota. The sweet dressing she creates is an ideal match for the crisp summer produce.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 4, 2012

A longtime favorite at our house! Crisp, sweet yet tart - a wonderful light salad for any meal. Versatile too, I often make a simplified version with just cucumbers and onions or add in other veggies. This recipe is often requested and has never disappointed!

MY REVIEW

Have made this recipe dozens of times over the years - always a family favorite especially in the summer.

MY REVIEW

I first saw this in Quick Cooking in July/Aug 2001 and have been making it ever since. It is a favorite. I make a big batch and keep it in the refrig. and use it for snacking. I'll have to try the Splenda to make it even more diet friendly.

MY REVIEW

Delicious and sweet! Since I only made this for my parents and me, I downsized to two cucumbers and two carrots. Instead of thinly slicing the carrots, I grated them to have carrot shavings. The next time I try this out, I'll be sure to replace sugar with Splenda to make it diabetic-friendly.
MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 4, 2008

Loved this when it came out in a "special edition" from Taste of Home and it has become a regular hit when cukes are growing like weeds in the summertime. I just got some PURPLE carrots from the farmers market so this is going to be FUN. I have successfully substituted Splenda (measures like sugar version) for the Sugar and it now works for the diabetics in the family too.
