Creamy Cucumber Salad

Alicia .


I am on a primarily raw food diet, and was thumbing through some recipes a friend suggested. This looked like a pretty good recipe for a cucumber salad that could be served like a potato or macaroni salad. The problem though, I didn't have all the ingredients or feel like using that much mayonnaise.

Using their recipe as a guideline and making some changes and substitutions I came up with this, it has that cool, refreshing kind of feeling.

How to Make Creamy Cucumber Salad


  1. Cut cucumber into quarters lengthwise and then cut into small chunks. (peel first if desired)

    Cut carrots into small rounds.
  2. In a mixing bowl, toss cucumber, carrots, onion, tomato, mushroom and radish together with just a pinch of salt.

    In a separate small bowl, stir together sour cream, a few drops of lemon juice and sugar. It will be thick, but that is alright.

    Mix together the sour cream and veggies, stirring carefully to coat.
  3. Sprinkle pepper and parsley and gently stir.

    Refrigerate until ready to serve.
