This cucumber salad is lower in fat than the one that I grew up with, but it's packed with flavor. Very good during the summer on a hot day on the side of pretty much anything you could possibly want to eat. A cook out must.

I am always trying different salads that are not a lettuce salad and this was very good. I had to use a green pepper, as the grocery store had no yellow ones in stock and I did not use the peanuts. Will definitely make this again.

This was wonderful...a lovely twist to an old favorite! I added splenda instead of sugar and omitted the yummy!
