This tastes great, and it's so easy to make! I wanted a change from the usual mixed lettuce salad.

Delicious! I used farmers market veggies for all 3 and you can really tell the difference. I love Italian dressing so this was a no brainer. Yum! Made for Fall PAC 2012.
I've whipped up something similar to this before. It makes a super-quick, healthy and colorful summer side dish. I think it's best to use homegrown fresh tomatoes and cukes for this. I at least doubled the amount of scallions and used light Italian dressing. This goes with anything from steak to burgers. Thanx!
The flavors are all there. Refreshing cucumber, juicy tomato and the savory onions. A great combination. The flavors of this salad will definately improve when the "real" tomatoes of summer are available. I think the trick of this simple recipe is to use a great homemade dressing or one that has been tried before. Some dressings just leave a lot to be desired. You might want to drain the salad before adding the dressing. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Very nice!!
