This Creamy Cucumber Salad is light, refreshing, and absolutely delicious. Perfect to beat the heat in the summertime or all year round as a simple side!
Set a colander over a large bowl; place the cucumbers, onion, and salt inside the colander and gently toss. Let sit for 30 minutes, allowing liquid to drain.
Rinse and pat dry.
In a large bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, dill, vinegar, sugar, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Add in the cucumber and onion; toss gently to combine and well coated.
Serve right away.
2. I highly recommend using a mandolin to slice your cucumbers and onion. This allows the slices to be thin and uniform.
3. If you're in a hurry (or impatient HA!) and don't want to let them sit for 30 minutes with the salt, you can skip it, but that step really helps extract unwanted moisture in this salad.
4. The flavor from fresh dill is pretty important in this salad, so don’t swap it out for dried dill - it just won’t be as good!
5. You can make this about an hour in advance of serving, but I don’t recommend much more than that. Cucumbers will continue to release liquid, causing the creamy dressing to get watery and also weaken the flavor.
