Easy Creamy Cucumber Salad

Sour Cream Cucumber And Onion Salad – Delicious! 
creamy cucumber salad

In our house we love this Easy Creamy Cucumber Salad, it is a nice twist from the classic cucumber and onion salad. I find it has a bit of a less bite to it, which is what I prefer. This one has sour cream, you can find some recipes that use mayonnaise, but I prefer the sour cream recipe! I like to make this every now and again!

My mother in law gave us some cucumber and onions from her garden, so I thought this would be a great time to whip this recipe up! It is really easy to make and doesn’t take many ingredients! This is great recipe for family gatherings, bbq’s, and potlucks!

Sour Cream Cucumber Salad

Like I said above it is so quick and easy to make this, and feel free to add a little dill if you like it. I am not a huge fan of fresh dill so I always skip it!

Easy Creamy Cucumber Salad

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 Large Cucumbers - Peeled and Sliced Thin
  • 1 Large Red or White Onion Sliced thin
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 2 tbs sugar (If you want more sweet do 1/4 cup)
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp pepper

Instructions

  1. Once you get your cucumber and onions sliced nice in thin you will set aside.
  2. In a bowl mix your sour cream, vinegar, sugar and salt and pepper together.
  3. Then mix in your veggies, and put in the fridge for at least 4 hours before serving. They taste better if they sit over night in fridge. It helps break them down a little.

Notes

I don't like my cucumber and onions to be that sweet, if you do add the 1/4 cup sugar like I said. You can always start at a little sugar taste, and then if you want more sweet add more later.

As you can see it doesn’t take much to whip these up, it is just waiting for them to set in the fridge to do their magic! Letting them sit helps break down the cucumbers and onions so they soak up that delicious flavor and become a bit softer like they need to be. We always enjoy eating them the next day, but I know at times we just wait the 4 hours cause we have no will power!

classic cucumber and onions

For Mother’s Day we had a bbq, and I decideded to bring deviled eggs and this classic cucumber and onions salad, two staples for barbecues! This recipe is one that I have used for years, you can use white or red onions in this, my husband bought red ones, so that is what we used. It adds a bit more color when you use red, but it is totally whatever you prefer.

Family Fun

My sister in law had a selfie stick so we put it to good use and did a fun family photo of everyone! I loved having to cram everyone on the couch all scrunched up so we could capture this photo! This is Adam’s parents and the three kids and our families and that my sister-in-laws mom and sister! We had tons of food, and lots of fun play time! Clay really loved being around everyone! He has one little cousin that they are one day shy of a month apart, so they could play together well!

If you make this recipe I hope you all enjoy it! Also, another add in is dill. A lot of people love to add dill to this, I personally am not a fan of dill so I always leave it out. If you do add it in, I think a teaspoon will do!
