Expert Tips

  • Going on a picnic? Make and take this salad in a plastic bag with a zipper top. When you get to your picnic site, simply spoon it into a serving dish.
  • If your cucumbers are young, you can skip the peeling step. It’s only when cucumbers mature that their peels toughen slightly, making peeling necessary.
