I love cucumbers. I enjoy it every day either on its own, with salt, pepper, and vinegar, or tossed in a simple dressing. I especially love this creamy cucumber salad. It’s perfectly creamy, refreshing, and very delicious. It is a simple, light salad that is made with only a few ingredients that you might already have on hand. All you need is to toss everything together, chill, and serve. This is a pretty simple salad with crisp cucumbers tossed in a creamy sauce and fresh dill.

This easy and quick salad recipe is great if you have an abundance of cucumbers. It’s another great cucumber recipe to add to your favorite list. This creamy cucumber salad is excellent on its own, but you can also pair it with steak, barbecue, or chicken. You can even bring this to potlucks or picnics. And this creamy, light, and tasty salad is a must on summer barbecues!


½ medium purple or yellow onion, thinly slice

1 tablespoon fresh or frozen dill, chopped

2 small garlic cloves, pressed

½ tablespoon fresh lemon juice, from ½ small lemon

1 ½ pounds cucumbers

½ teaspoon sea salt and a pinch of black pepper

¾ c. sour cream


Step 1: Mix 3/4 c sour cream with half tablespoon lemon juice, 2 pressed garlic cloves, 1 tablespoon dill, half teaspoon salt, and a pinch of pepper until well combined. Set aside.

Step 2: Into thin rounds, slice the cucumbers. Place them in a mixing bowl along with the sliced onion. Pour in the sauce and toss to coat the cucumbers.

Step 3: Serve and enjoy!

Tips and variations:

You can place this salad in the fridge for 3 to 4 hours before serving.

For a more, crispy taste, add the creamy sour cream dressing to the cucumber just before serving.

If desired, you can use Greek yoghurt in place of lemon.
