Friends, we are missing our beautiful garden back “home.”

Cucumber Salad Recipe

Our garden is like an old friend. We had so many memories together. Eleven years to be exact. But … time to move on.

Our first year to enjoy Armenian cucumbers, I made a delicious Cucumber Salad recipe over and over again. Partly because we had so many of these babies sitting on the kitchen counter, and then again, we LOVE this salad, because it reminds me of my mom. She would make a cucumber salad daily, and eat it for lunch.

This particular salad my niece made, with fresh pineapple and cilantro. This week I bought the cukes, and spiralized the cucumber.

One thing I love about spiralizing is that it removes the center of the cuke, the yucky seeds and the mushy part!

The dressing is uper easy, too –1:1:1—water, white vinegar, and sugar.

Make sure that you have a good cucumber. I always take a quick bite. There’s nothing worse than a bitter cuke!

  12. I need to get a spiralizer. This looks good. I love combining cucumbers with vinegar and oil along with salt, pepper, garlic powder, or leave out the salt and use garlic salt. My mom used to make cucumber salad with a light sour cream dressing that was always a favorite.

  13. My garden is my favorite place as well! This recipe looks super easy to whip up as a side or even main dish.

  14. For anyone watching carbs, I reduced the sugar to 1 tablespoon and while it was tart, it was still delicious! I have made it both ways. Thank you for an awesome recipe!!

  15. I followed the recipe exactly as directed, but mine turned out really soupy. Is that how it’s supposed to be? Or is the dressing supposed to be a light coating? Thanks for any input.

    • It shouldn’t be too soupy, my guess is it depends on how large the cucumbers are. Either way, it should be delicious!

  16. i’d dice the cukes and add jalapenos, then it would be perfect. i’m not into spiralizing, but i AM into heat + sweet!
