Creamy Cucumber Tomato Salad

Sharing is caring!

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

Refreshing vegetable and sour cream based salads are a long time favorite of mine. A lot of cucumber salads use only cucumbers in them, but this recipe adds ripe tomatoes and green onions. Not only is the taste great, but the colors are very pleasing.

To drain or not to drain: cucumbers

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 about a half 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.
