Creamy Cucumber Salad (+Video)

This Creamy Cucumber Salad is made with fresh cucumbers, sour cream, mayonnaise and fresh dill. So easy and creamy! Perfect summer salad!


I just adore cucumbers and slicing them up brings back a flood of memories of my childhood years. If you’ve never eaten cucumber in vinegar or in a creamed salad before, these recipes might sound really weird or strange. I guess it is one of those things that you just gotta grow up eating to truly appreciate. But I’m thinking, if you give them a try, you just might grow to love these simple but tasty cucumber dishes.

Fresh dill makes all the difference in this! So, where possible, use fresh dill in this recipe instead of the dry stuff. You won’t regret it. Also, I like to use English cucumbers. They are the longer cucumbers you can find in most grocery stores these days. Sometimes they are wrapped in plastic wrap. What I love about them is they have a super tender skin that you can eat. So you don’t have to peel them first! Such a time saver!

This Creamy Cucumber Salad is always a hit! It’s a perfect side dish to any spicy food you might be eating. It works with Spicy Chicken Wings or Nashville Hot Chicken!

    YES!! Finally, as most recipes only use sour cream and not the mayo, or vinegar and sugar. Thank you, I appreciate this recipe so much.!!

    Delicious! I made this last night with cucumbers and fresh dill from my garden (I live in AZ, so this is prime gardening season!). I’ve tried tons of cucumber salad recipes and this one is a keeper. Thanks for sharing it!

    When I was a child my mother would send me to my country grandparents for the summer. Back then I thought it was torture to be awakened before dawn to help cook for the pile of hungry farm hands who would gather around the table for breakfast before starting work. We would cook whatever was on hand, depending on the garden and what was freshly butchered.

    I now treasure those memories and all of the knowledge I gained during those summers. This recipe reminds me of a salad we made made back then. I think we used all mayo, but I always cut mayo amounts with plain yogurt now (instead of sour cream as this recipe shows) and add a few good grinds of pepper. Crisp, cool, and delicious. And, goes well with anything. Thanks for sharing!

    My mother would put ice cold water over cucumbers and lots of salt, let sit a few hours then rinse, then squeeze cucumber tight to rid of most water then pour on vinegar. Delicious!!

    I really like your take on the Creamy Cucumber recipe. I've never used sour cream but it sounds delish! I use one cup Mayo, 2-3 TBLSP White Vinegar, 1 TBLSP Apple Cider Vinegar, 2 tsp Sugar, 3 TSP Dill W, Onions and Cucumbers. I'm really excited to try a combination of your recipe and mine. I'll use both Sour Cream and Mayo; just not as much Mayo. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    I'm loving this. Yes, my mother made a cucumber and onion salad I loved. I remember her putting ice cubes in it to make it cold. So many of your recipes bring back wonderful memories of her! Thanks!! Pinning it!

    I've never had the creamy kind but willing to give it a try.
