    TMoney's Note:

    Great great aunt Jessie copied this one from a paper dated August 18, 1949. It sounds interesting and I may try it on a really hot day when cooking over a stove is not on my top ten "fun things to do" list.

      Aunt Jessie was on to a good thing. Fresh tomatoes and cucumbers are fabulous together. Now that we have access to both, you really need to make this salad. I made it according to Aunt Jessie's recipe, except I used smoked chicken which added a nice contrast to the the veggies. Thanks so much for sharing all of your Aunt's recipes. You definately need to try this one soon! :-)
