"Acting in 'Star Wars' I felt like a raisin in a giant fruit salad, and I didn't even know who the cantaloupes were."
- Mark Hamill, Actor
This is a light and wonderful salad that is full of flavor. I like the seeds left in the peeled cucumbers. The wonderful textures of the cucumbers and tomatoes combined with the creamy dressing makes this a perfect side dish for your summer cookout.
