Cucumbers All Dressed

  • This is a quick and easy salad that I make often throughout the year. Everyone likes it and it goes with almost any meal.  If you have fresh cucumbers, tomatoes or peppers from your garden it would be even better!
  After a slow start because of frost my tomatoes are almost ready but it will be a while until I have cucumbers or peppers.  
The following amount should serve about four people.  
This salad doesn't keep well so I try not to make any extra.

Cucumbers All Dressed

  • 1 cup cucumbers
  • 1 tomato
  • 1/2 yellow or orange pepper
  • 2 green onions, chopped fine
  • 1 Tbsp. dried parsley
Chop or dice cucumber, tomato and pepper in fairly large pieces add onion and parsley.  Mix dressing ingredients and pour on enough to coat vegetables.  Any remaining dressing will keep in a covered container in the fridge for a week.
Mix well and serve immediately.  


  • 2 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp. sugar
Alternate serving suggestion: For a vegetarian meal I serve Cucumbers All Dressed on a bed of  cooked, chilled, quinoa topped with feta cheese.
