Mom's Cucumber Salad - Review by JENNY-REDS
This is so refreshing on a hot summer day. I have an abundance of cucumbers in my garden and was looking for a good recipe and this is it! I peeled them and then put them in the food processor (used the slicing blade)in order to get them really thin. I used splenda in place of sugar and they were a tad sweet for me so I just added more dill and vinegar, but that can be alleviated by using less splenda next time. I also used half sour cream and half mayo. I think next time I may use all sour cream.
I couldn't ever find the perfect Waldorf salad - one that wasn't too mayonaise-y tasting, yet one that still held enough of the original flavor to be called a Waldorf. So I mixed and matched and experimented, and finally came up with a perfect twist on the classic Waldorf Salad recipe. Now I get requests for it at every family get together!
This cool cucumber salad marinated in a sweet vinegar dill dressing makes a tasty and refreshing side dish.
Vinegar and red pepper flakes add tangy snap to this cucumber, carrot, green onion, and sesame seed salad. It goes beautifully with Bulgogi (Korean barbequed beef).
This cool, creamy salad of layered cucumber, onion, and yogurt is topped off with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese. Lighter than similar salads with sour cream, it is very simple to prepare and a great addition to summer cookouts.
The tang from the Dijon, freshness from the lemon, and liveliness when paired with watercress makes this recipe a MUST! This recipe tastes best when paired with wheat bread, watercress and avocado!! But I can eat it by itself
This light and refreshing salad mixes the sweetness of strawberries and blueberries with a zesty homemade vinaigrette dressing.
This yummy, sweet and sour German red cabbage is easy to make!
Tomatoes, red onion, jalapeno pepper, cilantro, and lime juice combine in this fresh-tasting salsa that's served with chips or as a condiment for all your favorite Mexican dishes.
This sweet pasta dish is filled with crushed pineapple, Mandarin oranges, coconut, and mini marshmallows in a creamy pineapple dressing.
