  • Variation:
  • For another texture and flavor add 3/4 cup of shredded Mozzarella cheese before adding the dressing.
  • Tip:
  • To seed a cucumber, first halve it lengthwise. Use the tip of a spoon to scrape the seeds from each half. If you have a grapefruit spoon, you will find that the sharp tip works well for this task.
