Southern Summer Cucumber Salad

I LOVE cukes !! I grow them and put up about 28 quarts of Dill and B&B pickles every year.. we still manage to have cucumbers to eat every day ! This is a simple marinated summer salad popular in the South.. it has lots of little variations.. This is my version :)

How to Make Southern Summer Cucumber Salad


  • 1Prepare all veggies as above. Mix all together in a large lidded plastic or otherwise container.
  • 2Mix vinegar, sugar, and water together. Stir until sugar is completely dissolved, or allow to sit and stir occasionally until sugar is dissolved.
  • 3Pour the liquid over your veggies and mix well. Add finely minced dill to the mixture and stir lightly if you choose to use the dill. ( I love dill and use it in mine, but not everyone likes dill as much as I do ) ;)
  • 4Refrigerate covered for at least 3 hours, stirring occasionally, to allow the flavors to mix and the veggies to marinate. When ready, serve using a slotted spoon, and sprinkle black pepper on top per individual taste. So fresh, so cool, YUM!

They pack protein into a salad, are a fantastic on-the-go breakfast and a necessity for making deviled eggs. Hard boiled eggs are fantastic but are a bit intimidating to cooks....
