Kittencal's Creamy Cucumber Salad

Two medium regular cucumbers may be used in place of one large English cucumber, I prefer the taste and texture of English and has less water in it ---plan ahead there is a 75 minute draining time for the cucumber slices to remove excess moisture, this is a crucial step to prevent a watery salad, the onion is only optional, I like to add it in, this is a great recipe for garden fresh cucumbers :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the cucumber slices into a glass bowl, sprinkle with vinegar and kosher salt; toss using hands.
  2. Allow to sit for about 45 minutes.
  3. Pour out any liquid from the bowl and drain in a colander; allow to sit for another 30 minutes to allow any excess drainage.
  4. In a bowl mix together the mayonnaise with sour cream, sugar, fresh dill and black pepper.
  5. Place the cucumbers in a bowl; pour the dressing over and toss to coat.
  6. Mix in red onion slices (if using).
  7. Cover and refrigerate until serving.

Takes a long time to make for a salad, but it is worth it. And no dreaded "Return Of The Cucumber"
