Creamy Cucumber Salad - creamy and refreshing salad with English cucumbers, red onion, garlic, sour cream and parsley or dill. A perfect side dish to grilled meat or as a sandwich topper.
This salad goes perfectly with my Garlic Parmesan Crusted Salmon (cooked in the air fryer) or Easy Grilled Chicken.
Quick and easy salads with fresh vegetables and herbs are my favorite to make. Especially during summer, when produce is the best. Bonus points, if you are growing cucumbers in your garden. This salad is the perfect way to use them! Light, creamy and refreshing, this Creamy Cucumber Salad is perfect served with grilled or BBQ meat or as a topped in salads and wraps.
- English cucumbers (seedless)
- red onion
- sour cream
- dill or parsley
- salt and pepper
- Start by slicing the cucumber and red onion very thin.
- Add sour cream, parsley and garlic. Stir gently to coat.
- Serve right away or keep in the fridge for up to 1 hour.
The longer you will let the salad sit in the fridge, the more moisture the cucumber will release, causing a build-up of water in the bottom of the salad bowl. It is best to eat the salad the same day you make it.
Keep the salad in a bowl, covered with plastic wrap or lid. Store in the fridge until ready to serve.
