I love making this creamy cucumber salad as a quick and easy veggie side. It’s easy as can be and goes well with anything grilled! This couldn’t be easier. All you need is a knife!

Ingredients

Cucumbers, onions, sour cream, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in glass bowls on a wooden counter.
  • Crunchy, thin-skinned cucumbers work best. You don’t need to peel or de-seed them. The long English cucumbers or the small Persian varieties are both perfect. Need help choosing a cucumber variety? Check out this guide!
  • Sweet onions bump up the flavor and add a little textural variety. Use Vidalia onions if you can find them. If not, a regular sweet onion will do. 
  • An easy sour cream and dill dressing with lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Fresh and freeze-dried dill both work well.
