Creamy Cucumber Salad


This Creamy Cucumber Salad hits the spot for a refreshing side dish. It's perfect when served with a steak or grilled chicken.

Note: This particular recipe does not call for draining the cucumbers. As such, there will be liquid that releases from the cucumbers to create a sauce. If this bothers you, after peeling and slicing the cucumbers into rounds, lay them out on paper towels. Sprinkle them with a small amount of salt and let them drain for one hour. After letting them drain, take a few papers towels and gently press them onto the cucumbers to pick up more of the moisture. Wipe any salt off the cucumbers and proceed with the recipe.
