Fresh herbs and a light vinaigrette season the garden-fresh cucumbers and tomatoes in this easy salad. I'm a busy pastor's wife and mother and am always looking for new recipes that can be prepared quickly but don't sacrifice taste or nutrition. —Debbie Purdue, Westland, Michigan

"Have been hearing/reading about all the benefits of cucumbers and so happy to find this recipe. Very easy, quick and refreshing salad! I used dried parsley and mint. It's probably even better with fresh ingredients. This would be easy to prepare ahead of time to take to potlucks, etc., and nothing would wilt or turn colors. A great light dish for hot weather! Thanks for sharing!"

"What a suprise this salad was! The flavors blended wonderfully but no one flavor overpowered the other. Very refreshing & tasty. I liked the combo of the mint, parsely and lemon. Perfect compliment to the Sizzle & Smoke Flat Iron Steaks."
