I love cucumbers, I think they are great in so many things. I especially love a Cucumber Salad. This Dill Cucumber Salad is one of my favorites and we make it all spring and summer.

This is a great recipe to throw together quickly to have as a side dish to a grill out, to bring to gatherings or just because you want to use up some cucumbers.

One of my favorite herbs is dill, and dill and cucumbers really play well with one another so that is why we add dill and it is the main flavor besides the cucumbers in this salad.

It is so creamy and flavorful that you will be wanting to come back for more. It I just one of those salads that has became a staple in our house and everyone enjoys it.

You really can’t go wrong with making this as it is so easy to put together and that is one thing that I really love about it as well, easy is my middle name!

HOW TO MAKE DILL CUCUMBER SALAD:

  1. With a mandolin, carefully slice the cucumbers as thinly as possible and place them in a fine-mesh strainer over a large bowl. Toss with the salt. Place in the refrigerator and let the excess liquid drip off for one hour. 
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the yogurt, dill, vinegar, sugar, garlic powder, and black pepper, set aside.
  3. Take the cucumbers out of the refrigerator and discard the liquid. With paper towels or a clean kitchen towel, ring out as much of the liquid as possible, these need to be dry. 
  4. Add the cucumbers and red onion to the bowl with the sauce, toss to combine and coat everything in the sauce. Taste and add more salt if necessary.

You really can’t get much easier than that! This Dill Cucumber Salad is just so easy to put together that it is a no-brainer that it should be made.

I love all cucumber salad recipes but we have been making this one for many many years and it is our default salad and we really never stray from it.

The flavors together play well with one another, it has crunch with the creamy dressing which is super simple to make, it is just all around a nice light salad with good flavor.

We use greek yogurt in this, I love greek yogurt for bases to many recipes and this one especially, you can use plain unflavored yogurt but I highly recommend using the plain greek yogurt.

Also the addition of red onions is a great flavor balance that gives it just a different taste but is a fun colorful and tasty contrast that works very well.

This Dill Cucumber Salad can be stored in the serving bowl wrapped tightly in plastic wrap or in an airtight container for up to 3-4 days.

While it is better fresh after it is made, this will last a few days for your enjoyment at a later date.

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • This salad needs time for the flavors to marry, so make sure you chill it for 1 hour before serving.
  • We use English Cucumber fo this, but you can use regular if that is all you can find.
  • The red onions are optional, but I highly suggest using them.
  • Substitute fresh dill with dried dill if you cannot find fresh.
