Summer Cucumber Salad Recipe

Whenever I pack a picnic, this salad comes along. It's great with grilled entrees or sandwiches. In summer and fall, it's among my most requested side dishes. It keeps well in the refrigerator, so you can make it ahead of time.

"We say this recipe is "not for the feint of heart". But we love it! Great for a change from our usual, milder sour cream/vinegar dressing on cucumbers that we make so much when they are in season in the garden. Also really good when paired with meat, almost like a tangy salsa condiment. ( I do chop the cucumber smaller than described in recipe.)"
