Recipe: Creamy Cucumber Salad

Creamy Cucumber Saladcreamy cucumber salad recipeAn easy and colorful combination of veggies, doused in a tasty, creamy dressing – ENJOY!

Before we get started,  I wanted to throw in a tip, for making this salad that much "more", so you'll acheive full flavor and creaminess!

A few hours before, I like to do the "prep work", (which honestly is no work at all – But it does help aid in the crispness of the salad), slice cucumber, tossing with just a bit of salt.  Put the cucumbers into a container, followed by a paper towel on top.  Now make sure your ziplock is sealed tightly and put into the fridge.  The salt will help draw out a lot of the moisture in the cucumber that will make your salad very watery. Your paper towel will be wet, a few hours later!
Alternatively, you could just seed the cucumber and throw it in the salad that way.  Whichever your preference is fine!

Let's Begin…

You Will Need:

Veggies:
1 Small Onion, sliced thin
1 Cucumber (I use those long ones)
1 Medium-Large Carrot, cut matchstick style

Dressing:
1 and a ½ Tbsp Mayo (I use Hellmans)
1 and a ½ Tbsp White Vinegar
1/4 Cup Sour Cream (sub w/Greek yogurt if you like)

Spices:
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 Tbsp Dried Dill Weed 
*Salt & Pepper, to your taste

Whisk together the mayo, white vinegar, sour cream and spices.  Pour over veggies, mix until well combined.  I like to add a few cracks of fresh ground pepper.  

Chill in fridge for at least one hour – Enjoy!
