Make It

  • Just follow our 3 simple steps

  • Trim ends off a cucumber and cut in half crosswise and lengthwise. Run a spoon down the centre to remove seeds. Using a sharp vegetable peeler or other slicer, thinly slice each piece lengthwise into ribbons. Place ribbons in a large bowl of ice water and chill at least a half hour.

  • Drain and toss in large bowl, along with 4 cups torn romaine lettuce and 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions.

  • Divide salad among 4 bowls and pour 1 tbsp. Kraft Thousand Island or French Dressing over top of each. For added crunch, crumble a package of dry Ramen noodles (reserving seasoning packet for another use) into salad before tossing.

Kraft Kitchen Tips


    Instead of cucumber ribbons, thinly slice cucumbers into rounds. No need to chill before proceeding.

Ratings & Reviews



instead of using the dressings called for try the new Tai Sesame from Kraft it is ti die for


I didn't find that there was anything special about this salad, and even though I squeezed the water from the cucumber strips (which were difficult to slice) the salad wilted very fast.


The cucumber did not curl as nicely in the picture and it lacked something. The onion called for was too much and next time I would add more ingredients. French dressing saved it.


very good i'm impressed not a big salad eater this is a tasty one it's light and refreshing
