This has a secret to keeping the cucumbers crispy. My youngest daughter loves this salad and asks for it all the time. I know there are so many good versions of this, but I always come back to this one. The red bell peppers gives it that extra fresh flavor. This is so good and keeps its crunch, thanks to the secret I learned long ago. You must try this version! We eat this year round!
