DIRECTIONS

  • Peel & slice cucumbers in 1/2 in thick slices. Then half ea slice & transfer all slices to a lrg mixing bowl (See note).
  • Roughly dice red onion & add to the bowl.
  • Quarter tomatoes, remove seeds, rough dice the tomato “meat” & add to the bowl.
  • Thinly slice 1/2 green pepper, cut slices in 1 in strips & add to the bowl.
  • Toss prepared “veggies” to achieve a good distributional mix.
  • Add last 6 ingredients to bowl, mix well & refrigerate at least 2 hrs (stirring at least once to redistribute ingredients).
  • Notes: The cucumber cut is esp important. If thinly sliced, most cucumbers wilt & do not retain their crunch. -- When all ingredients have been combined, the mixture will appear dry & lack a creamy texture or appearance. DO NOT PANIC – that will begin to change almost immediately.
  • Note added 7/24/06: In response to reviewer comments, the amt of salt has been reduced by half. If you reduce further, you will likely lose any salt component in the mix.
