A dear friend showed me how to use up cucumbers in a tangy salad. The longer it chills, the deeper the flavor. Look for lemon or pickling cucumbers. —Dian Jorgensen, Santa Rosa, California

"I made this refreshing salad to serve with a simple sandwich supper. While I reduced the recipe to about four servings, the salad turned out great!"
