My dad used to make this. My husband would eat himself SICK on this. I've been looking for a similar recipe and this seems to be it. My dad would save the marinade and just continue to add the veggies to it. It just got better and better. This year I have my own cukes and tomatoes. Thanks for the recipe. I don't have my dad anymore to consult, so I appreciate the help.<br/>Linda
MY HUSBAND RONNIE JUST LOVES CUCUMBERS!!!! Sometimes I tell him, "your love for cucumbers ... that aint right ... " this dish is so good though it got me stumblin lookin for the leftovers in the fridge! next time my sister comes to visit i'm going to make it for her, might even raise her eyebrows. give this dish 2 cucumbers! a lil ranch would make it even better
Everyone in my family has made these for as long as I can remember. We use fresh parsley instead of mint. Great summer side salad!
