This Creamy Cucumber Salad is so nostalgic to me. It reminds me of humid days, the smell of burgers on the grill and those crisp midwest veggies straight from the garden. 

My Grandma made this salad a lot growing up and made her house smell of onions and I love that smell. I might be strange, but I love that smell. I always thought it was some detailed recipe that took a long time to make, but come to find out…it’s incredibly easy. 

And yes, I know I’m calling this a salad and it has mayo but that’s how we do things in the Midwest. It’s a way of life. 

The Creamy Sauce

This creamy cucumber salad sauce is embarrassingly easy. It’s made of: mayo, white vinegar, sugar, dill, garlic, pepper. The longer it sit, the longer those flavors infuse into the cucumbers and onions. A little bit sour, a little bit sweet. 

Quick tip...

Make sure after you brine the cucumbers and onions, you drain tohe liquid out. This will make certain your creamy cucumber salad is more creamy and less watery.
