    Great fresh salad that uses early summer vegetables. Very colorful too! Cooking time is the time for soaking the onions.

      This salad has long been a family favorite-- growing up in my family, it was a summer staple. My son could eat it every day! Great with grilled anything-- so easy to make. I vary the vinegar used, but usually have seasoned (sweetened) rice vinegar, sometimes with a few tablespoons of balsamic vinaigrette added. Often I slice the cucumbers paper thin as they tend to absorb the vinegar/dressing flavor better. I season mine with salt, fresh ground pepper, dill, dried basil, and just a tad of Italian seasoning. Be sure to let it sit refrigerated for a time before serving so the flavors can develop. Keeps well in a covered refrigerator container for several days. Enjoy!

      This was great! Thanks for the idea about soaking the onions. They were still strong, but I feel like it made a big difference!

      I cut everything in a lot smaller pieces than specified, but other than that I made it exactly as called for. It ended up swimming in dressing after sitting in the fridge for a couple hours, so if I'm going to make it again I might either use less dressing or I might serve it sooner after I made it. Thanks so much for the great recipe!

      I threw in some iceberg lettuce and used my blender for the dressing.Nice and light salad.
