Creamy Cucumber and Onion Salad

The sun is shining and the wind is blowing like crazy out! I thought today would be a perfect day to have some cucumber and onions for supper!! 

With summer here, this is a side dish we enjoy eating often! Good ole’  Cucumber and Onion salad! I love the classic one where it is vinegar, water, and sugar, but sometimes I enjoy making this creamy cucumber and onion salad version! It adds new flavor to it, and is so addictive!  

I have been making this for quite awhile and it always has people commenting on it when I take it to gatherings!  Give it a go, and see how you like it! Now if you want to make a bigger batch feel free! We just have me and Adam in our house so I don’t want to make a huge batch each time, and this seems to work for us. I haven’t had any troubles when I double the batch!


Yield: 4 servings

Creamy Cucumber and Onion Salad


  • 4 medium Cucumbers, (sliced)  
  • 1 Small Onion, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 Cup Sour Cream
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste


  1. In a bowl mix the sour cream and vinegar together.
  2. Once it is creamy toss in the cucumbers and onions.
  3. Mix well then add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Allow the cucumbers to sit for an hour in fridge, and check to see if you like the taste. If you want a stronger vinegar taste add a little more vinegar to them and mix well.

You can make this the night before to let the flavors meld even more.

These are super easy to make and really delicious!! Feel free to play around more with the recipe to adjust the flavor to your liking. Adding more vinegar will give it more of a kick, and more sour cream can help calm down the flavor. I know we all have different taste buds, so I thought I would share that part!

 What kind of salads or side dishes do you enjoy making in the summer months for you and your family, or to take to gatherings? Love hearing about them as it could turn into a new recipe to try out for us :-)!
