I grew up on my mom’s creamy cucumber salad. I ate so much it’s a wonder that my hair isn’t green. My favorite part? The creamy dressing that’s left in the bottom of the bowl after you finish off the cucumbers. I’d drink that stuff right up. I still love my mom’s salad. I recently bought a spiralizer, so I figured that was a great opportunity to give it a whirl. In just seconds you get these different-looking cucumber noodles… or coodles… Hey, they’re fun! This is a wonderful variation on my favorite.
Although this creamy cucumber salad is best with fresh dill, I usually use dry unless I can pick some fresh from our garden. I rarely get fresh dill from our garden because our garden stinks. Sorry, there’s just no other way to say it. I also add a bit more dill than the recipe calls for since I really like the combination of dill and mayonnaise. It’s very similar to Ranch dressing in flavor. I also make a version of this salad without the ‘creamy’.
Also try my creamy dill broccoli slaw!
