This fresh Creamy Cucumber Salad is made with crisp cucumbers, red onions, and dill and then perfectly seasoned with a light sauce. It’s a great healthy side dish for a cookout or dinner.
I made this cucumber salad recipe to have at a family barbecue at my brother’s house while in NC. My mother had made this Succotash Salad to go along the ultra popular, Italian Grilled Chicken and this cucumber salad was another perfect addition too.
When it’s hot out, salad are such a great addition to meals. This is also a great way to use up the abundance of cucumbers you may have growing in your garden too!
This recipe is so easy to toss together for a crunchy low-carb side dish for any picnic or your own summer dinner. (I use my little mandolin slicer for extra quick thin slicing.)
I like to use Greek yogurt in my cucumber salad instead of sour cream, mayonnaise or ranch dressing versions.
