Looks great as usual. I will have to try, Mom is stopping over today with pickles and cucumbers.
Thanks Deb....nothing fancy about this one for sure. Go ahead and add as much dill as you'd like-or you can omit it all together-I've done that too. It doesn't get any easier than this though. I hope you enjoy it.
Sounds like you're getting a nice haul from your Dad's garden and your Mom's kitchen-that's fantastic! Enjoy-hard to believe there's only one more month of summer isn't it? Where does the time go?
yum, we love cucumbers fixed this way too. But never had an actual recipe with measured ingreds. Going to make this for our Sunday BBQ. Karla
This is gorgeous Carol. Love the colors and they just POP! Simple yet elegant.
Love the photos. Looks like I'll be taking this to the meeting as well.
Yum! That looks delicious .
Thanks Carol, have copied the recipe.
So pretty! My uncles cukes are just getting started, so my mom will be passing some along before too long :) Thank you for the R&R&P Carol :)

Carol, fresh cucumber salads are my most favorite summer salads. I can eat them every single day. Occasionally on a hot summer day that is the only thing I will eat for dinner. DH is a little pickier and will only eat cucumbers, onions and vinegar. Nothing else added, and only after it has sat in the refrigerator for a couple days. And most certainly that won't be his entire meal, either!
Beautiful picture! Thanks for the recipe and review. I have no doubt that I'll love it.
That is gorgeous!
I just put cucumbers on the shopping list.
Maybe I can try it with zucchini, which I do have.

I agree, Carol. I've been making these since we got married (mother-in-law used to make this) and it is a very refreshing salad. I like to eat it in the evenings when I'm hungry---I don't think there's many calories in this at all. My other favorite cucumber salad is garden tomates cut in chunks, salt, cucumbers and fat free italian dressing. Very nice picture!
Oh, just edited this to add that here's another really good cucumber salad with all the ingredients you mentioned, but no vinegar. Add fat free sour cream and a little sugar to the other ingredients--so simple and good, too.

Hi Karla-I think this is one of my favorite ways to eat cucumbers in the summer. Have fun at your get together.
Thanks Cyndy-can't wait for my other half to get home so he can take his photography job back.......I'd rather cook!! :) Oh yes, this would be wonderful for your meeting-nice and light....
Hi Nancy-I hope you like these!
Woo hoo Jolene-fresh cucumbers! I used to love it when my Dad passed on the excess from their garden--also wish he'd passed his green thumb on to me......I think mine is BLACK! Sheesh.
Hi Suziee-I'm with you-I can eat just this for lunch and be very happy-in fact I did that just today. Somehow I never get sick of this salad..........probably because it IS so simple. Thanks for your thumbs up on the photos-I know Bob would have been MUCH more creative-I was too darned HUNGRY!
Thank you Dorothy-I've never tried zucchini in a salad like this......maybe it would work????
Hi Carole-I've been known to sneak a few slices of cucumber out of the bowl at night when I walk by the refrigerator. Our cherry and grape tomatoes are coming in and some more cucumbers will be ready in a day or so-I'll be happy to have a mixture of those with whatever is being served that night. Seems the season for fresh garden vegetables is SO short here in New England-I enjoy each and every bit I can get from my garden or my father in law's. Saves some money on the grocery bill too!
Carol and everyone,
These are sooooooooo good! I love them! I am now in the cucumber club with Carol. Can I be vice president? Next year I am definitely planting my own. I put them on my blog, and linked back to this post. Take a look:
