Cucumber Salad 2

This is a ‘to taste’ recipe where the volume of ingredients does not matter. If you’re making it for two people, you might use one large cucumber. It can also be made in bulk for a huge weekend BBQ crowd. It keeps well in the fridge, developing a stronger flavour every day.

Cucumber Salad

This is from one of the John and Mary McDougall cookbooks (Maximum Weight Loss I think). It is not 100% strict for Fuhrman because of the (small amount of) sugar, so feel free to modify or eliminate. I like this as a tasty alternative to lettuce-based salads.
