2 medium cucumbers (peeled, sliced 1/2 in thick & halved)

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Peel & slice cucumbers in 1/2 in thick slices. Then half each slice & transfer all slices to a lrg mixing bowl (See note).

Roughly dice red onion & add to the bowl.

Quarter tomatoes, remove seeds, rough dice the tomato “meat” & add to the bowl.

Thinly slice 1/2 green pepper, cut slices in 1 in strips & add to the bowl.

Toss together vegetables to mix. Add last 6 ingredients to bowl, mix well & refrigerate at least 2 hours, stirring at once to distribute dressing.

COOKS NOTE: When all ingredients have been combined, the mixture will appear dry & lack a creamy texture or appearance. This will change as
the salad weeps.
