Summer means loads of cucumbers from our garden, and right now we have so many!  I can only make these amazing fresh garlic pickles so many times, so I decided to get a little creative and make this delicious creamy cucumber dill macaroni salad for a wonderful side dish. Every day now we are getting 2-3 fresh cucumbers from our plants. This year we are grew Boston picklers and Market More cucumbers which are great slicing cucs. I wanted to make this recipe as a mix between my family’s creamy cucumber salad recipe and a classic macaroni salad.  It makes such a refreshing lunch and a great side dish with dinner… or anything coming off the grill!

This Cucumber Dill Macaroni Salad Recipe Is:

  • Fresh

  • Loaded with Flavor

  • Tangy

Grow Fresh Dill on Your Counter All Year Long

We got this great 6-Pod Aerogarden which is fantastic for growing herbs in the winter.  We actually got it when we lived in a smaller apartment, but even now that we own an acreage we still use it year-round!  I love growing herbs on my countertop like fresh basil, dill, mint, sage, thyme, parsley, and lemon balm. It uses LED lights and water, so no messy soil needed – you can have fresh herbs at your fingertips any time. I love picking a few springs of parsley to chop on pastas, adding basil leaves to soups, and tossing some dill in with my pasta salads. This Aerogarden is a great gift for anyone who would like fresh herbs… no big kitchen or green thumb required!

How Do I Make Macaroni Salad with Cucumbers?

  1. Cook macaroni noodles according to package instructions.  Drain, rinse in a colander under cool water.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the cooled macaroni noodles, onion, carrots, celery, chopped cucumbers, mayo, relish, sour cream, apple cider vinegar, sugar, and fresh dill.  Mix well to combine all ingredients.  Taste and add salt and pepper if desired.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.  Right before serving I like to add an extra tablespoon of mayo or sour cream to make it extra creamy!  And fresh dill to garnish.
