Cucumber Salad Recipe

This particular salad my niece, Lisa, made and shared with me years ago. Now it’s one of our family favorite recipes. I love the option of either spiralizing the cucumber, or you can use a mandolin for thinly sliced cucumber.

But one thing I love about spiralizing is that it removes the center of the cuke, the yucky seeds and the mushy part!

The dressing is uper easy, too –1:1:1—water, white vinegar, and sugar.

Make sure that you have a good cucumber. I always take a quick bite. There’s nothing worse than a bitter cuke!

    What if I only have balsamic vinager red??

    • Sandy

      Balsamic (red) is not the right vinegar for this salad! But you could always try it :)

    I absolutely loathe cilantro – any ideas for a substitute?

    • Sandy

      Never tried, basil, but it could work?

    • Carrie Harris

      I have made this several times it is a crowd pleasere. Hubby and I were just talking that for those who don’t like cilantro mint would be good. Kinda like a mojito. Maybe add a little rum for an adult kick!

    • Sandy

      Mmm, those ideas sound great!

    i’d dice the cukes and add jalapenos, then it would be perfect. i’m not into spiralizing, but i AM into heat + sweet!

  9. ALHReply

    I followed the recipe exactly as directed, but mine turned out really soupy. Is that how it’s supposed to be? Or is the dressing supposed to be a light coating? Thanks for any input.

    • Sandy

      It shouldn’t be too soupy, my guess is it depends on how large the cucumbers are. Either way, it should be delicious!

    For anyone watching carbs, I reduced the sugar to 1 tablespoon and while it was tart, it was still delicious! I have made it both ways. Thank you for an awesome recipe!!

    • Sandy

      Good to know. Thanks Kristen!

    My garden is my favorite place as well! This recipe looks super easy to whip up as a side or even main dish.

  12. kirstin troyerReply

    I need to get a spiralizer. This looks good. I love combining cucumbers with vinegar and oil along with salt, pepper, garlic powder, or leave out the salt and use garlic salt. My mom used to make cucumber salad with a light sour cream dressing that was always a favorite.
