Creamy Cucumber Salad is a must have for summer cookouts and every day dinners. Fresh sliced cucumbers, red onion and a creamy sauce with garlic and fresh dill make this salad a refreshing and delicious addition to your next meal.
We are getting a bumper crop of cucumbers from the garden this year and this creamy cucumber salad has been on the menu at least once or twice a week. It’s so cool and the flavors are incredible.
This is the classic that you grew up with and a summer staple. So easy to put together and a great way to enjoy your fresh summer produce.
How to Make Creamy Cucumber Salad:
- Wash cucumbers and dry thoroughly. Slice in about 1/4 inch thick slices. Place in a serving bowl.
- Slice red onions into small pieces and add to serving bowl.

How to Store Cucumbers:
Cucumbers are one of those veggies that perish rather quickly. They say they are best kept at room temperature but I find that they last a little longer in the refrigerator. I like to keep them in a small basket on the shelf, towards the front. The back or the bottom of the refrigerator will be too cold and will make your cucumbers mushy.
Creamy Cucumber Salad is an easy side dish for summer get togethers, picnics and cookouts. Everyone loves the flavor combination and the crisp cool cucumber crunch.
