Spring Salad Recipe

"Our family has been savoring this salad for over 75 years. It goes back to my Bavarian grandmother," reports Mari Malmquist of Hayward, Wisconsin. "With a large family to raise, she turned to the garden for inexpensive ingredients. The lightly dressed tomatoes, cucumbers and radishes are still a hit at meals and potlucks today."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 2 cups thinly sliced radishes
  • 1 large cucumber, quartered, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Sugar substitute equivalent to 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, radishes and cucumber. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, water, sugar substitute, salt and pepper until sugar substitute is dissolved (mixture will foam up slightly). Pour over vegetable mixture; toss to coat evenly. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Serve with a slotted spoon. Yield: 6 servings.
