Ok, see if this checks all your boxes! Light? Check. Easy? Check. Tasty? Check. Summer Salad? Check. This is Aunt Peggy, as in Paula Deen’s Aunt Peggy’s Cumcumber, Tomato, and Onion Salad. Put one slice of cucumber in iced water while making this salad, and for a moment, you might think you are at a spa. I try to make it enjoyable for you!
