Creamy Cucumber Salad

Alicia .


I am on a primarily raw food diet, and was thumbing through some recipes a friend suggested. This looked like a pretty good recipe for a cucumber salad that could be served like a potato or macaroni salad. The problem though, I didn't have all the ingredients or feel like using that much mayonnaise.

Using their recipe as a guideline and making some changes and substitutions I came up with this, it has that cool, refreshing kind of feeling.
