Put prepared vegetables in large salad bowl. In smaller bowl combine remaining ingredients with whisk until salt and sugar dissolve. Pour dressing over vegetables and let stand in refrigerator about 1 hour before serving for best flavor.


I didn't have oregano so I used basil instead, also added fresh dill.

Love this salad! I look forward to it every spring. I serve it at every family BBQ ( and we have a lot ), and there are never any leftovers.

For the most part I liked this salad. I made it ahead of time and let it sit in the fridge. The tomatoes ended up having a weird texture. As I have seen in the reviews people have gone with cherry tomatoes and that could work better. or if I plan on making it a head of time i might just add tmatoes as I eat it.

Great salad! A few minor adjustments - used cherry tomatoes, a yellow onion and kept part of the peel on the cucumber. Also added green pepper since I had one in the fridge and needed to use it - but was a great addition! Provided for a nice texture and crunch. Received rave reviews!!

I made a half batch of this yesterday just to sample it. I've been disappointed by many a cucumber salad so I had my reservations. I tried some about an hour after making it and was pleasantly surprised, but after the remainder sat overnight it was REALLY GOOD! I'll have to make a full size portion soon because I ate it all before my husband got to try it.

Tried this today with on hand ingredients. Substituted black cherry infused balsamic vinegar, added a tinge of lemon, 1/2 of the olive oil & left over feta. OMG! So good!!!!!
