Cucumber Salad

Cucumber salad is seriously one of my favorite things ever. I love the cool, crisp cucumbers paired with the bite of vinegar. It just screams summer to me.

There’s two main types of cucumber salad: Creamy & Vinegar-y

This one is a vinegar based one. A creamy cucumber salad typically uses something like ranch dressing. I like the creamy ones with grape tomatoes mixed in and sometimes a little onion. The vinegar ones I like with nothing but a little seasoning and the cucumbers. The longer it sits in the refrigerator, the better it gets. It’s incredibly refreshing and the perfect companion to nearly any summertime dinner.

Cucumber Salad


4 cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, rice vinegar or white wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon agave or honey
Several cranks of a black pepper mill

Combine everything together in a bowl, refrigerate for a couple hours minimum and eat.

Does it get any easier than that? I didn’t think so.

      I’ve never tried persian cucumbers, but I bet they would work great in a cucumber salad. They have a thinner skin like English cucumbers, so you probably wouldn’t even need to peel them.

      I love cucumbers too! Another favorite cucumber recipe of mine is tzatziki sauce — it’s very creamy and full of cucumbers.
