Cucumber Salad Recipe

It seems like everyone has their own special recipe for cucumber salad, and after a summer of cookouts and barbeques, all those mayo-based salads can start to feel a bit redundant and heavy. That’s where this dish shines: the combination of rice wine vinegar and fresh fill gives it a very refreshing quality that makes for a perfect summer side that goes with practically anything.
