1/11 Photos of Twisted Sister’s Creamy Cucumber Salad
When I arrived in Iceland, this was my DH’s 1st food request & I went thru a lot of RZ cucumber salad recipes to be sure it wasn’t a duplicate. Siggi & my sister named this because it was original w/me & because of my twissis internet identity. For best results, don’t make this a dy ahead, but do allow at least 2 hrs for the flavors to blend & the “cream” to develop from the finished ingredient mix. I promise you’ll like this. (Stated time does not include refrigeration time)
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 2 medium cucumbers (peeled, sliced 1/2 in thick & halved)
- 1 medium red onion (roughly diced)
- 2 large tomatoes (seeds removed & diced)
- 1/2 green pepper (thinly sliced & cut in 1 in strips)
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons white vinegar
- 4 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
- 1 teaspoon dried dill
- 1 teaspoon seasoning salt (more to taste as desired)
- 1Peel & slice cucumbers in 1/2 in thick slices. Then half ea slice & transfer all slices to a lrg mixing bowl (See note).
- 2Roughly dice red onion & add to the bowl.
- 3Quarter tomatoes, remove seeds, rough dice the tomato “meat” & add to the bowl.
- 4Thinly slice 1/2 green pepper, cut slices in 1 in strips & add to the bowl.
- 5Toss prepared “veggies” to achieve a good distributional mix.
- 6Add last 6 ingredients to bowl, mix well & refrigerate at least 2 hrs (stirring at least once to redistribute ingredients).
- 7Notes: The cucumber cut is esp important. If thinly sliced, most cucumbers wilt & do not retain their crunch. -- When all ingredients have been combined, the mixture will appear dry & lack a creamy texture or appearance. DO NOT PANIC – that will begin to change almost immediately.
- 8Note added 7/24/06: In response to reviewer comments, the amt of salt has been reduced by half. If you reduce further, you will likely lose any salt component in the mix.
