Cucumber Tomato and Green Onion Salad Recipe

My mother always made this salad, so I tried it on my future husband when we were courting. I discovered later that he didn't like vinegar in his foods, but he learned to enjoy this salad and called it piccalilli. -Jan Peterson Mesa, Arizona

"I'm making a similar salad right now... minus the sugar and in place of the vinegar I use ranch dressing. It's a great salad."

"At first I thought using so much water would be a bad idea, but I decided to go ahead and just follow the recipe. I LOVED IT!!! The flavor is so tasty (assuming you like vinegar) and I found that I even liked slurping up the juice along with the crunchy parts. I will definitely make this again and again. Thank you so much!"
