I was making paninis and wanted a quick side so I put all the ingredients together about 30 minutes before the meal and put it in the fridge. By the time it came to serve, it was a soupy wet mess without much flavor. I think the cucumber should be prepped ahead, salted, and allowed to drip in a colander for a bit then squeezed dry in paper towels or a clean cloth before putting this salad together. Not sure I'd make this one again. I did like the combo of the cucumber, carrot, and orange sections though. So a mixed review here.
