Cooling Cucumber Salad

This Cooling Cucumber Salad is crisp and fresh and perfect for hot summer days!

Cooling Cucumber Salad

There's nothing more refreshing than a cold cucumber salad.   Cool and crisp cucumbers are sliced into sticks and coated with lemon, garlic, and herbs to make a deliciously light salad.

Perfect as a side dish for all your potlucks, barbecues, and summer cookouts.  The dish is very easy to make and can be made ahead. It's one recipe you'll want to keep handy.

What Ingredients do I need?

  • Cucumbers - Any type of cucumber will work, but the Persian cucumbers or the Hot House/English cucmbers can have the peel left on, which make everything easier.  
  • Dill -  Fresh dill is best so you get that crisp herby flavor.
  • Garlic - You can use pre-minced garlic or use garlic cloves that you mince yourself, whichever is more convenient.
  • Lemon Juice from a real lemon for the best flavor
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper

Kitchen Tips and Notes

  • Use a mandolin like this one for quick and easy slicing in to sticks.  Make sure to use the food gaurd.   Otherwise you can use a knife.
  • The salad can be kept in the refrigerator up to 3 days.
  • Mix it up a little and add some slice red onion to the mix.
