Midwestern Creamy Cucumber and Vinegar Salad made with fresh cucumbers, sour cream, vinegar, and fresh herbs – a summer staple for every picnic and cookout!
Who else is getting so excited for all things summer? I love hiking, swimming, and of course, eating summer foods! This creamy cucumber and vinegar salad was a staple growing up in Indiana, and I can’t wait to share it with you today.
There’s something so refreshing about eating a pile of cucumbers that are seasoned with sour cream, vinegar, fresh herbs, and more. They taste a bit like cucumbers in a ranch dressing, but they are better and not as heavy as that much ranch would be. I make this recipe with all sour cream for my creamy factor but you can also use mayo or Greek yogurt (or a combination of two of those) in your recipe. They all taste great; I think it just depends on how your mom made it when it comes to this creamy cucumber and vinegar salad recipe.
This is a great addition to anything on the grill (such a simple grilled fish), plus a side of sweet corn or baked potatoes, and then some seasonal fruit (who else is excited for watermelon and summer peaches??). It can also be taken to just about any picnic, potluck, or cookout that you are invited to (just keep it cold…). It’s the perfect pair for all the things, all summer long. I love how inexpensive it is to make and how quickly it comes together, too. My kids can make this recipe because it’s so simple.
I can’t wait for you to try this simple creamy cucumber salad recipe. It’s a summer staple!
