"MY MOM'S SIDE of the family was German and Irish. Settling in Pennsylvania, they adopted some of the cooking and customs of the Pennsylvania Dutch. This is a Dutch dish Mom loved, and today it's my favorite garden salad...the blend of crisp cucumbers and homegrown tomatoes is wonderful!"

"I can't believe that after all these years I am seeing this recipe. My mother too was of Irish descent . This was one of the favorite recipes in summer when we always had an abundance of cucs. The only difference in her recipe was she would add some Mayonnaise and cut back on the sr cream,"
