I have a confession to make. Years ago I talked about how I should have named my blog “The Finicky Foodie,” because there are so many beloved foods that make me absolutely run away in horror. Cucumbers are one of them.

I know!!! I know you are probably wondering what the heck I’m giving you this recipe for. Well, that’s because my sweet hubby loves cucumbers. He loves them and he loves this salad, so I make it for him any time he wants. Sometimes I’ll simply make it as a surprise for him. And so, I thought I would share the recipe with you.

That said, I have to admit that I do love pickles. I’ll snack on them all day long. I also love tzatziki sauce. But raw cucumbers? Nope. see ya later alligator!
