Best Creamy Cucumber Salad Recipe

Well, you guys devoured my Asian Cucumber Salad Recipe. So I thought I’d make the original cucumber salad that everyone makes in the summer time, you know, the creamy one. 

My mom would make this every single summer, at least once a week because my brother and I would devour it. There was just something about fresh crisp cucumbers tossed in a sweet tangy cream sauce with fresh herbs and onions. And let me give you a hint, the onions are the key component to this dish… well besides the cucumbers. The onions give it so much flavor!

Can you make Creamy Cucumber Salad with Greek Yogurt?

Yes! Most of the time creamy cucumber salad is made with either sour cream or mayo, but greek yogurt can easily be subbed. It adds a nice tanginess to the sauce that really enhances the flavors.

Can you make Cucumber Salad ahead of time?

Absolutely. It’s actually tastes better when it sits for a least 24 hours. Think of it like marinating. Letting the cucumber sit really creates depths of flavor and makes the salad pop with deliciousness!
