We had a very successful garden season this year, and our cucumbers were the most productive crop. I feel like every time I went into the garden I had a few more cucumbers to pick. The vines actually grew out of the raised garden beds and about 15 feed up the rocks next to the beds. Needless to say, I wanted to create a fun and delicious pasta salad with all the cucumbers we got this year.

What’s In This Cucumber Pasta Salad Recipe?

  • Cucumber, Red Onion, Parsley, Dill – I get all the fresh produce for my recipes from my garden and from Misfits Market – they sell all organic produce at a super discounted price, and it’s purchased direct from the farmers. We get Misfit Market boxes every other week and love picking out our favorite seasonal produce for delivery.  You can get $10 off your first $30 box by clicking here!
    If you think organic produce is too expensive… think again, and give Misfits Market a look!
This recipe was inspired by a few of my favorite recipes: creamy cucumber salad + pasta salad. Put them together, and you have a bright and fresh side dish that goes great with pretty much anything! The creamy cucumber recipe is an old family favorite, but I replaced the sour cream with a dairy free mayo. Since this is a bit of a hybrid recipe, it’s going into my Midwestern Fusion recipe category 🙂
