GRANDMA’S CREAMY CUCUMBER SALAD

GRANDMA’S CREAMY CUCUMBER SALAD – I decided to incorporate this delicious favorite with a batch of fresh salads I cooked for several celebrations. It’s very incredible! Grandma’s Creamy Italian Cucumber Salad is just as simple to make as her usual cucumber salad, but with a dash of Italian flavor. This wonderful salad features two types of fresh tomatoes, zesty herbs, and a creamy Italian dressing. It’s something to keep in mind during your next picnic or party. This recipe creates a large bowl, but it may easily be halved in half for a smaller gathering.
