I have been really excited about all of the cucumbers that have been coming out of the garden lately! Fresh, beautiful little green cylinders that make great pickles, relishes, eye masks and of course, salads!
If you are like me, lettuce salads are great, but sometimes you just crave something different! Something fresh, juicy and light. May I offer you a simple recipe for cucumber salad to curb that craving?
Now let me start by saying one thing right away….the longer it sits the better. So if you are having a dinner party and want a side dish that you can prepare ahead of time, this is your recipe! It pairs well with anything off of the BBQ for amazing summer entertaining!
This recipe serves 3-4 as a side dish, but feel free to double (or triple it) because remember, the longer it sits the better! Also makes a great lunch the next day.
- 3 small or 1 large cucumber
- Handful of fresh dill (big handful)
- 1tbsp mayonnaise
- 1tbsp sour cream (or greek yogurt)
- 1tsp apple cider vinegar
- Salt and pepper to taste ( my taster likes lots!)
Like I mentioned, let sit for at least 4 hours. Overnight is so much better though!
I have seen a lot of people say cucumber salad doesn’t have much flavour, but my guess is they didn’t let it sit long enough!
So if you are like me and have lots of cucumbers and dill in your garden, you might be serving a lot of this recipe! It tastes like summer, it is perfect to prepare ahead and perfect for hot summer days!
