Creamy Cucumber Salad


Planning a picnic or BBQ with friends and family? Consider adding this easy and delicious Creamy Cucumber Salad recipe to the menu. Fresh, bright, and crisp, this salad makes for a perfect accompaniment to a grilled meal. Plus, it is a breeze to make and always much appreciated.

What I love most about this salad, aside from its deliciousness, is that you only need a few pantry-staple ingredients to create a rich flavor profile. This easy creamy cucumber and onion salad takes full advantage of crunchy cucumbers, pungent white onions, and sweet and tangy homemade dressing. To start the salad, peel the cucumbers and cut them in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds using a spoon or a melon baller to keep the salad from getting soggy, and slice the cucumbers. For the dressing, simply combine the sour cream, mayo, chopped fresh dill, white vinegar, sugar, and salt to taste and you are done. Toss the dressing with cucumbers and chill for about 1 hour before serving. Enjoy!

I love this salad! It's a lighter low-carb alternative to potato salad that will complement any BBQ.
