  1. I had the Simple Cucumber Salad Recipe along with my breakfast this morning, and I loved these cucumbers. I am on the low carb Mediterranean (Mediterranean Atkins) diet. I only need to lose 35 lbs. And the Mediterranean lifestyle of eating (wholesome healthy foods) and the first phase of Atkins (cutting back on the carbs) and you have a wholesome healthy way to take the pounds off. I also love sliced tomatoes fresh from the garden, and I have a neighbor who keeps us in freshly picked tomatoes, and I prepared them the same way along with the cucumbers, and I loved this simple salad. I enjoyed this salad more than my egg and bacon. Thank you for sharing this recipe. It is a refreshing enjoyable dish.
