There's something so great about "lettuce-less" salads. While I love and appreciate the health benefits of lettuce (especially spinach!), sometimes I just wish I could eat the "meat" of the salad. This dish lets me do that. The crisp cucumbers keep this salad fresh for a day or two, making it easy to prepare in advance. It's easy to eat, (easy to make), AND it's tasty, making it the perfect picnic food!
Yield: 4-5 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
