    This is a refreshing summer salad perfect for a picnic or barbecue. I usually serve it with a spicy sirloin steak and thin-cut chips.

    Stunning salad and the liquid is great to mop up with crusty bread...yum yum yum  -  01 Sep 2014


    This was nice and refreshing, but it had a lot of liquid. Next time, I will salt and drain the cucumbers first.  -  07 Aug 2010


    Love this! The perfect accompaniment to pretty much any 'summer'/ BBQ dishes. I sometimes add a litte chilli for some extra 'bite'.  -  14 Sep 2009
