Cucumber Salad over Lemon Pepper Chicken

There's an Indian restaurant in town who has a House Salad that is SO GOOD.  I've always referred to it as "Cucumber Salad" but it also has corn and green bell peppers tossed in a thin ranch dressing.

I made a variation of that last night at dinner at Mom's house to go with the Lemon Pepper Chicken she made. It was DELICIOUS.  We didn't have a bell pepper on hand, but we had a can of Medium Rotel.  It added a little extra kick to the otherwise cool salad.

You can eat this as a side, or pour it over chicken like we did!

2 medium cucumbers, diced
1 can yellow corn, drained, with 1/3 cup drained water set aside
1 can Rotel, drained (or diced tomatoes for a milder taste)
1/3 cup ranch dressing

Toss the cucumbers, yellow corn, and Rotel in a large bowl.  In a smaller bowl, whisk together the ranch dressing and drained water from the can of corn.  Pour over the diced veggies and toss.

That's IT! So simple, and SO tasty! :) Enjoy!
