Creamy Cucumber Salad Recipe | The Stay At Home Chef

Creamy Cucumber Salad is an easy-to-make side dish that’s sure to be a hit at any gathering, whether it’s a backyard barbecue, cookout, potluck, or just a regular weeknight dinner. To add some “creaminess” to this popular dish, I decided to use sour cream.

If you love cucumber salad, but prefer a less creamy vinaigrette, here’s another easy cucumber salad recipe.

Cucumber salad has deep roots in the German cuisine known as Gurkensalat. This is a popular side dish that was introduced to America. The dish originated in Germany but has spread around the world, including to German immigrants in the United States. There are several variations within Germany, and even more variations in the United States. This creamy version is popular due to its simple ingredients and easy preparation.

What kind of cucumber should I use?

English cucumbers are great for making cucumber salads because they have a good flavor and have few seeds. If English cucumbers are not available, you can use regular seedless cucumbers. Since the amount is small, you will need to use double the amount. We do not recommend using cucumbers with seeds in this recipe.

To peel or not to peel?

There is nothing harmful about cucumber skin. In fact, it’s a great source of dietary fiber and nutrients. If you don’t like the skin of cucumbers, you can always peel them without the hassle. However, if you like cucumbers, give them a quick wash before slicing them.

Fresh and dried dill:

Fresh dill is highly recommended for this recipe as it has great flavor. If you can’t find or have fresh dill available, you can use dried dill, but you should use a small amount. All you need is 2-3 teaspoons of dried dill.
