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!
I'm confused! I don't see and water in the ingredients and I'm ready that people are cutting back on the water??!
Family loved this recipe! We had it last night with 4th of July Grilled Salmon (4th of July Grilled Salmon *or Chicken!*.) My hubby doesn't like cukes, so I made it with zucchini instead. Tasted just as good as when I made it with the cukes. What a wonderful, low cal, low cholesterol meal for a hot Summer day.
This was such an easy salad and had great results. I usually would make mine with Italian dressing but it was always so blahhh. Living in New Jersey we have the best cucumbers and tomatoes in the summer and this will be the only way I prepare this salad from now on! I also skipped the mint because I didn't have any and it still came out great!
This was very good. I used Splenda instead of sugar, and I reduced the water by half. I will probably use more vinegar next time and a little more mint. I layered mine and poured the marinade over all. It was pretty in the jars. I'll post a picture.
Delicious dish! I substituted green onions because I had lots to use up, and omitted the mint. I will make this many times. Thanks, mOm!
My mom made this dressing as her go to dressing for regular salads as well through my childhood. When she past away, no one knew how to make it until I came across it on line. These days I don't use sugar, and try to eat as much organic as I can--so I use this basic recipe with cold pressed olive oil, organic vinegar, sea salt, regular pepper and I use the same amount of organic stevia instead of sugar--tastes the same, but much healthier. Thank you for posting!
