Dilled Cucumber, Tomato and Celery Salad

Tom and Agnes 0

"We developed this mid-summer salad to use an overabundance of fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, and celery. This recipe makes more dressing than you need for the salad, but it will keep almost forever in the refrigerator."

We grow a garden every summer and can't wait to try this with fresh veggies.It's a definite keeper.
