Orange Cucumber Tossed Salad

 Orange Cucumber Tossed Salad
"This salad has been a family favorite for as long as I can remember," Betty Tobias writes from Nashua, New Hampshire. "It's prettiest when it's served in a glass bowl, with orange and cucumber slices lining the sides. Often, I'll double the dressing recipe so I have some on hand for the next time I make it."
