Sherry's Cucumber Salad

Introduction

I love the versatility of this salad,and the ease in making it a delicious side dish,or meal.My children are grown but they still ask for this dish at family gatherings.It's great for picnics because it is not mayonaise based.I hope you and your family enjoy it as much as us.

  • Almost exactly the same as a salad I make (I omit the bell pepper). I love it mixed with pasta - that's a good dinner for me (maybe add some chopped boiled egg). Hubby likes this as the side when we have cheesy baked eggs. - 5/26/10
