If you like garlic, you will love the dressing on this cucumber salad. It better to make it ahead to let the flavors meld...I usually make it the day before...the dressing is great on salads as well.

Enjoy!

15 Min

Method:

No-Cook or Other

Ingredients

5
baby cucumbers, sliced thin - i use my mandolin ( if you like a sturdier cucumber after soaking in salt...slice them thicker.
2 tsp
kosher salt
1/2
red pepper, diced
2 medium
tomatos, - i remove seeds, slice thin and cut into fourths - can chop if you wish
2 - 3
radishes - sliced thin
2 - 3
spring onions, sliced thin or 1/4 cup diced red onion

DRESSING

3/4 c
mayonnaise
1/4 c
sour cream
3 clove
garlic, minced - i use food processor
1 /4 tsp
dried basil
1/4 tsp
ground mustard
1 tsp
sugar
2 tsp
white vinegar
1/4 tsp
each - salt & pepper
2 - 3 Tbsp
milk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a medium bowl, mix all dressing ingredients until smooth. Taste to see if you want to add more seasoning. Cover and chill or even better if sits over night.
2
Place cucumbers in a colander and add 2 tsp kosher salt and toss to coat. Leave drain for 30 minutes...this removes much of the water and won't water down your dressing.

After draining, rinse and place in a clean tea towel to dry.

Place all prepared vegetables in a bowl and toss.
3
Spoon dressing over the vegetables and toss to coat all cucumbers, as they tend to stick together. I use my fingers, they are your best tools.
4
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.


Enjoy!
