I prepared this salad last night with only very minor changes. I chopped the cucumbers instead of slicing them because they do not set well with my husband. I was somewhat disappointed in the dressing. It was extremely bland. I will change the dressing the next time I prepare this dish. I see lots of possibilities with this salad. I recommend this recipe (with changes in the dressing) as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home.
