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

"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."
