Summer picnics are just around the corner and this Creamy Dill Cucumber Salad will make for a perfect side dish. Cucumbers and onions in a delicious dill dressing make for a perfect combo.
Creamy Dill Cucumber Salad
We love to grill out all summer long. We enjoy burgers, dogs, ribs, chicken, and all sort of salads during the warmer months. Salads always make for a perfect side dish
Sometimes, I will make a basic Pasta Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette or a traditional Quick and Easy Potato Salad. Last night, we tossed a large Pork Butt into our smoker to enjoy for dinner and lunches the next few days. Since a salad goes perfect with pulled pork sandwiches and I had some cucumbers in the fridge, I decided to make a Creamy Dill Cucumber Salad.
While I was growing up, family picnics were frequent. I recall one of my great aunts making this salad for most every family picnic. It’s such a simple salad but filled with great dill flavor. Perfect for summer.
All that is needed to make this salad is cucumbers, a Vidalia onion, sour cream, apple cider vinegar, dill, sugar, and some salt and pepper. Just slice your cucumber and onion and then whip up the dressing. Super simple.
2 large Cucumbers
i large Vidalia Onion
1 cup Sour Cream
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
1 tbsp Dill Weed
1/4 cup Vinegar
1/4 cup Sugar
Peel and slice onion. Then chop each slice into quarters and break apart.
Trim and slice cucumbers (thin is better).
Place cucumbers and onions in a large bowl.
In another bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients until well blended.
Pour dressing mixture over onions and cucumbers and toss to coat.
Best if served immediately.
