Expert Tips

Be sure to peel the cucumbers, even if their skin is relatively thin. By exposing all of the cucumber’s flesh to the dressing, it soaks up more flavor.

Two cups of frozen cut green beans, cooked briefly and rinsed under cool water, will save you the time of chopping and cooking fresh beans.
