Amazing Cucumber Basil Salad

Amazing Cucumber Basil Salad

RainbowJewels

"I created this salad because I had lots of fresh veggies and herbs from my garden that needed using up. It is so good, and because it makes its own dressing, it's very healthy as well. The flavor is best when left in the fridge overnight."

Not a lot of flavor. Fresh tasting but just not worth the effort to me. Couldn't taste the spinach at all.
