More Favorite Summer Salads

Both of these are cool, crisp, crunchy, fairly low carb, and husband approved.  I also tend to have all the ingredients on hand, except maybe the cukes and apples.  If you like cucumbers, you’ll love this one —

Dilled Cucumber Salad


  • 2 cucumbers – cut lengthwise, scoop out the seeds, and cut in 1/4 chunks
  • 2 ripe tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced


For the dressing, mix together:

  • 1/4 C. cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar or Splenda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


Toss and chill at least 15 minutes before serving (an hour is better).  Feel free to add more and/or fresh dill to suit your taste.  I love it, so I pour it on.


The next one takes a little more time because of the chopping.  But it’s worth it!  And when’s the last time you had —

Waldorf Salad

  • 3 apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1 C. thinly sliced celery
  • 1/2 C. chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 C. raisins (optional)


For the dressing —

  • 1/2 C. mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar or Splenda
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


Mix all together, chill, and enjoy.

Have a great holiday!


  1. I’ve made that cucumber salad before and love it but I’d forgotten all about it. We have a garden full of cukes and now I can do something different with them. Morley and Heather thank you for the recipe reminder.

    PS Come see us!! I’ve almost forgotten what you look like
