Dad’s Creamy Cucumber Salad


This cucumber salad is very tasty! I salt my cucumbers for a bit and then drain them. You always have to drain the liquid off the cucumbers. The salt is what makes the cucumbers soft and salt-flavored. Delicious!

To make this amazing Creamy cucumber salad you’ll need the following ingredients:


2 large cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced

1 sweet onion, thinly sliced

1 tablespoon of sea salt

1 1/2 cups mayonnaise, or more to taste

2 tablespoons vinegar

1 tablespoon white sugar

1 teaspoon dried dill weed

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon ground black pepper


Mix cucumbers, sweet onion, and sea salt together in a bowl. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let sit for 30 minutes.

Turn cucumber mixture into a colander set over a bowl or in a sink; let drain, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has drained, about 30 minutes more. Transfer drained cucumber mixture to a large bowl.

Stir mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, dill, garlic powder, and black pepper together in a bowl with a whisk until smooth; pour over the cucumber mixture and stir to coat vegetables with the dressing.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
