  • Cook's Note:
  • My Grammy never used a recipe and didn't own measuring cups or spoons, so this is a rough estimate of what I usually use when I make this. You really have to just guess and check until you find the right combination. A nice way to cut down on the calories and fat is to use light salad dressing.

This is the salad I grew up with my Grandma making with fresh tomatoes/cucumbers/onion out of her garden. Any onion is good, I like it best with red onion. Sometimes, she'd throw in some of her fresh dill, too. Keep in mind that the amount of salad dressing and sugar is purely dependant on taste--I'd add the mayonnaise a quarter cup at a time as to not go overboard.

Good way to use beautiful garden-fresh summer tomatoes. As another reviewer recommended, do approach the salad dressing cautiously, as you can always add more. I used Splenda and cut the dressing back about 30% which worked fine. Add the dressing right before you plan to serve because if added too soon, it will be runny/watery. Just a good old fashioned tomato salad, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Love this salad. Can't get enough.

This is a very good basic Creamy Cucumber and Tomato Salad recipe. I love it just as is but sometimes I add a pinch of dill and a little celery salt. For some of those that say it gets to runny, if you take the seeds out of the cucumber and tomatoes it helps a lot. I cube mine instead of slicing for this purpose.

The recipe is great, but I used sour cream with a dash of vinegar. I learned that if you take out the seeds of the tomato and cucumbers the salad will last longer because of less water.

Wonderful, but you don't need this much sugar--just a pinch! Added sour cream as another reviewer suggested and so far this week, we've had it three times--LOVE tomato season!! I've added lettuce, baby spinach and sunflower seeds in varying combinations, and it's always delish!!

My family really loved this one! A great way to use our abundance of cucumbers and tomatoes! I love it just the way it is and I've also sprinkled some dill and a little sour cream for a different flavor. Quick and easy!
