Creamy Cucumber Salad

If you’re looking for a spectacular summer dish, you’ll adore this creamy cucumber salad recipe. It also happens to be low-carb and keto-friendly as well!

I actually prefer to make the dressing a day ahead of time before adding it to the vegetables to give the flavors time to meld. This isn’t required, but it really brings out the dill flavor without letting the salad get watered down.


Creamy Cucumber Salad

You’ll Need
1/2 cup Sour cream
2 tbsp Fresh dill (chopped)
1 tbsp Olive oil
1 tbsp Lemon juice
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
1/2 tsp Sea salt
1/8 tsp White ground pepper
6 cups Cucumber, chopped
1 small Red onion

If this salad is going to sit for more than a day we recommend cutting the cucumbers in half lengthwise and using a spoon to scoop out the seeds. Then cut the cucumbers into even slices or chop into small chunks (depending on how you’d like the salad to look).

Thinly slice the red onion and combine it in a bowl with the prepared cucumber.

Whisk the sour cream, dill, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic powder, salt, and pepper together. Pour the mixture over the cucumbers and onions and toss lightly to evenly coat.

Serve as a side with your favorite grilled meats, or over some grilled salmon.


It’s fantastic with our cedar plank grilled salmon recipe too!

  1. This is a really great recipe. I’ve used it before and am considering making it again soon! My one question is how long can it be refrigerated? Thanks!

    This was delicious! It’s light and refreshing, but filling enough for a meal on its own. The only thing I would change the next time I make this is to add more cucumber–I think I’ll use 1/2 English and 1/2 regular.
