Tangy Cucumber Salad

You'll spark taste buds with this tangy and refreshing salad. The simple marinade gives mild cucumbers lots of zip. The tomatoes are a pretty addition. This is a super use of summer's garden bounty. -Edna Hoffman, Hebron, Indiana

    Delicious salad. The dressing has just enough sweetness to off set the vinegar.

    This was easy to make. I think next time I will try with fresh herbs. I did like the slight heat and sweet of these.

    The first time I made this my family was "eww" before they even tasted it. I had planned on having it for supper. Needless to say by the time supper time came there was barely enough left.

    This salad reminds me of a dish we had in Fort Lauderdale while we were on our honeymoon. So good and fresh!

    This was very good. The only change I made was to add green onions in place of the onions.

    I thought this was a super recipe. I will definately make it again. I want to try it with some jalapenos.

    Loved this salad. I did skip the garlic powder since we are not great fans of garlic.
