This recipe has been in my husbands family since he was a kid. It is a Family Favorite. In trying to eat healthier, I added Chia seeds to this recipe to increase the fiber content & lower the net carbs per serving. By doing that this recipe now has 3 net carbs per serving instead of the original 7. Using a Zero calorie sweetener keeps the sugar down to only 2 per serving, & there are 130 calories per serving.

We loved this new version, I was skeptical because of the chia seeds, but my husband said it tasted the same. The chia seeds absorbs some of the liquid in the cukes as the salad sits.
