Step by step Corn Pasta Cucumber Salad recipe in French dressing with photos of each step.
I had this salad first time in my friends 1 dish party. Then obviously, I took this recipe from that friend, Alifya. She had this ‘Andaza recipe’ (visual estimation) and I give this recipe a more accurate touch.
This is a sweet and sour salad, the cucumber provides the crunch and French dressing brings out all flavors. This salad is great to serve with high protein food like, chicken , steak or seafood.
Ideally, do not serve this salad with high carb food like burger, rice or something similar. The taste is yum, it is very easy to make and if has always been a hit. I can’t recommend it more.
