This salad is best served the day it is made.

It making ahead of time I would recommend waiting to pour vinaigrette over salad until closer to the time you are serving it.

You can use regular lemons if Meyer lemons are unavailable. Meyer lemons are slightly sweeter than regular lemons so you can add a teaspoon of sugar if using regular lemons.

If you would like to add salt and pepper to cucumber salad add right before serving.
