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.
This simple dressing has served me for many years. Using this basic recipe, I can easily make simple variations, usually with ingredients I have on hand. As a result, I have always made my own salad dressings.

"A splash of this delicate dressing lets the goodness of fresh spring greens shine through." says Vivian Haen (right) of Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin. It's also excellent drizzled over wedges of vine-ripened tomatoes."
