Super Easy: Creamy Cucumber Salad

This is actually the creamy version of my other recipe Super Easy: Cucumber Salad. My DH actually prefers the creamy version more, but it totally depends on what type of Italian dressing I have on hand as to which one I make.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup creamy Italian salad dressing
  • 3 cucumbers (medium sized)
  • 2 tablespoons chives
  • 1 cup onion


  1. Peel and slice cucumbers and onions very thinly (I use a mandolin for this).
  2. Place cucumbers, onion slices and salad dressing in a container that has a tight fitting lid.
  3. Place the lid on and give the container a couple of shakes which will coat the cucumbers, chives and onions with the dressing and toss the salad.
  4. Place container in the refrigerator for 24 hours. Enjoy!

No lie! This is Super Easy and Super Yummy! I made a small batch using fresh locally grown onions and a cuke from our CSA box; fresh chives from our garden. My favorite creamy Italian recipe is this: Creamy Italian Dressing which I used. I threw everything in a Mason jar, shook, and refrigerated for 24 hours turning the jar upside down and right side up a few times when I remembered. Went well with my ZWT tagged roast lamb recipe, too! Thanks! Reviewed for Veg Tag/August.

I had to use Tuscan Italian dressing because my Creamy Italian was out of date. (It also has a creamy texture.) I left out the chives & sprinkled on some salt. Made for Ramadan Tag
