Low Calorie Cucumber Picnic Salad

Low Calorie Recipe Cucumber Picnic Salad Summertime Recipe


This recipe takes mere minutes to make, but it is so good, people will be begging you for the recipe.


Slice cucumber thin with mandolin slicer. Mix all ingredients except cucumbers together. Toss cucumbers with sauce. Refrigerate overnight or for a few hours. Please note: You will look at this and think to yourself “That is not enough sauce!” and have the urge to make more sauce. When it sits overnight, the water from the cucumber will mix with sauce and you will wake up with a LOT more sauce than you think.
