Cucumber Salad Recipe

Amish recipes are simple and delicious. Your vegetable garden doesn’t have to be producing a bumper crop of cucumbers (that will happen soon enough!) for you to make this easy cucumber salad recipe. We’re thinking of Memorial Day or just as a side dish with dinner tonight. This Amish salad recipe is light and the perfect side dish for beef, chicken, pork, and seafood. 

You don’t need a lot of ingredients for this Amish cucumber salad recipe. You’ll need cucumbers, salt, onion, vinegar, and sour cream. Sprinkle the sliced cucumbers with the salt and let them sit for about five minutes to remove excess moisture. Then add the sliced onion, vinegar, and sour cream. For a little spice, add some crushed red pepper flakes or a pinch of cayenne.

Did you know that a cucumber is 95 percent water and the whole thing has just 16 calories? Not bad! This is a creamy way to add this healthy ingredient to your weekly recipe rotation.
