Ingredients 

creamy cucumber salad ingredients
  • Cucumber: Our prime ingredient for the recipe is cucumber. I’m using a knife to cut it into round, medium-sized pieces. 
  • Dairy Cream: I’m using store-bought dairy cream. Coconut cream or almond cream is the best substitute for it. 
  • Mayonnaise: I’m a big fan of mayonnaise in salads; it gives the salad a rich, tangy, and slightly sweet flavor. 
  • Yogurt: This is optional, but I love thicker and creamy content, so I’m blending salad with a few tablespoons of yogurt. Nonetheless, you can also use greek yogurt if you don’t prefer to add dairy cream. 
  • Sugar & Salt: A pinch of salt and some sugar enhance the savory flavors, making this creamy cucumber salad savory and umami.

Let’s Make The Creamy Cucumber Salad

  1. Cut The Cucumber: The first step is to slice the cucumber. I prefer a cucumber slice with 0.5 cm to 0.6 cm thickness. The knife seems to be a handy option for slicing. But if you have got any slicing gadget, you can use that. 
  1. Whisk The Dressing: Now, let’s prepare the dressing. First, add yogurt to a mixing bowl and add the mayonnaise and dairy cream. Sprinkle the pinch of salt and sugar. You can add vinegar for a citrus taste, but I’m skipping it now. Whisk this dressing perfectly.

FAQs

You can easily store this cucumber salad in your refrigerator for 2 – 3 days. Remember that cucumbers release water over time, so drain all the moisture before serving. You can also pour more cream, sugar and vinegar to refresh the flavor. 

If you’re living a non-dairy life, simply use the coconut cream of Greek yogurt instead of dairy cream. You can also use almond cream that tastes more pleasant and makes the salad fascinating. 

Sugar is the key to making the salad sweet. But if you dislike white sugar, simply use brown sugar. Or even you can drizzle honey or maple syrup to elevate the sweet nodes in creamy cucumber salad. Nonetheless, the dairy cream and mayonnaise also give a sweet touch to this salad. 

You can use any kind of cucumber, whether it’s Persian or English; the key is freshness. Secondly, make sure to slice the cucumber in 1/4 -inch thickness.
