Cool Cucumber Salad Recipes

I have a few Cucumber Salad Recipes below for you to try. Some are with a vinaigrette dressing and the other is with a sour cream based dressing. They are all very easy and simple vegetable salad recipes.

Cucumbers can sometimes be quite bitter, so I recommend taste testing first. If it is bitter – then remove the peel - otherwise it can be left on.

Also, the seeds in the regular salad cucumbers are usually bitter – therefore I highly recommend the seedless type or remove the center seeded portion.

I normally use the English cucumber for all my vegetable salad recipes, since the seeds are tiny and not bitter.

The following simple salad recipes are great to accompany any type of meal. My family wouldn't think of eating a roast of beef or roladen without them.
