I like a simple salad of cut up cucumbers and tomatoes and toss with low fat mayo. Can also add whatever veggies you feel like such as green pepper, radishes, and I've even diced up a little potato and it's all good!
The Dacha salad sounds so yummy. I have been trying to add radishes back into the diet but sometimes they are just too strong.

Both sound so good! I really don't have a recipe but my MIL makes this every summer and now I do too.
