Dad's Creamy Cucumber Salad Recipe
Cucumber and sweet onion swim together in a dressing made with mayonnaise and vinegar in this simple creamy cucumber salad recipe.
Don't forget to drain the cucumbers! I used cucumbers from our garden. Follow the steps EXACTLY, especially the draining part. I put mine in a salad spinner, which automatically caused a separation between the cucumbers and the brine. I also waited the full 30 minutes indicated. I also added a sprig of fresh tarragon that I chopped up and it added an amazing flavor. I made it a bit last minute so I wasn't able to keep it in the refrigerator the full two hours, but it tasted great after cooling for 45 minutes. The incredible thing about this salad is how crispy the cucumber remained, even the left overs we ate the next day.. I've made it twice already; my husband loves it.
Dad's best recipes range from creamy cucumber salads to delectable desserts.
I made this for a get together at my son's house. He said he preferred creamy over vinegar cucumbers, so when I saw this recipe I knew this was the one I had to make. Everybody loved it.
This was so yummy! Omg I couldn't stay out of it! I added some tomatoes to mine. I'm so glad I found this recipe.
I rinse these under cold water after sitting in a colander for about a 1/2 hour and then dump them out onto a paper towel and pat dry. Otherwise, they are too salty for me. I also cut the garlic powder by half. Delicious!
Love it just as is, or you can just make it with mayo, vinegar, and a packet of the dry hidden valley ranch mix. Delicious!
I made this used purple onion instead was delicious
