Cucumber Salad

This is so colorful and crunchy! I left the capers out. I wanted to add feta, but didn’t have any on hand. Maybe next time. I found this one at Sweets by Sarah . Sarah is a Marine Corps Capitan who is in Iraq so while she is still updating her blog, her new posts don’t include recipes. You can look at the older posts for lots of great ones though.3 cucumbers, peeled, seeded & chopped
2 yellow bell peppers, chopped
1 pint grape tomates, halved
1 red onion, chopped
2 t. dill weed
1 jar capers, drained
1/4 c. cider vinegar
1/4 c. olive oil

Chop all the veggies and combine them in a bowl. Add capers, dill weed, cider vinegar, and olive oil. Mix to coat all ingredients.

  1. Valarie! Thank you so much for visiting Mona's Musings and leaving such a complimentary compliment!

    I LOVE your blog! Oh my goodness --- I think you're a blessing. I'm in desperate need of a shot in the arm (I mean in the kitchen). I have a problem: I'm no good with recipe books without pictures and need someone to say: "this is really good" before I feel motivated to try something new. I think your blog is perfect for me!

    I'm glad you enjoyed Musings...it really should be called "Mona AND FRIENDS Musings" because everyone loves to pour their heart out there. I post every Sunday and send a comp 2 CD set of "With Mine Own Hand: The Musical Account of Nephi" to all new followers. If you decide to follow along, send your address to info@nephi-story.com.

    Thank you for introducing me to YOU.

    Your newest friend,
