Creamy Cucumber Salad – The Perfect Summer Salad
Cucumbers are one of my favorite vegetables and I often eat them with a little salt and pepper as a snack (and I always sneak a few bites when making salads!).
So I love salads that use cucumbers as the base (huge fan of onion, tomato and cucumber salad, and just realized that I’ve never shared my recipe for it, so I’m putting that on my list of recipes to share in the future!).
This creamy cucumber salad is the perfect side dish for a light summer meal. You only need a few fresh kitchen staples (well, the dill may be the only non-staple, but it’s easy enough to find!).
And the best part – it only takes a few minutes to mix everything together. So this’ll be EASY to throw together! Just pop it in the fridge while getting the rest of the meal prepared and before you know it, dinner’s done.
