Our garden cucumbers are always super productive all summer long – thanks to my husbands green thumb and our bees (love my pollinators)!  This cucumber salad is a fantastic way to use up those garden cucumbers, and can be made with vegan mayo – see video below for the brand I use.

This creamy cucumber salad with mayo has been made time & time again in our household. I make it for summer cookouts when friends are over, or just as a weeknight recipe when I have extra cucumbers. The combination of the mayo, dill, cucumber, and onion is classic. It’s a great salad to serve with heavier fare. 

This Cucumber Salad with Mayo Is:

  • Bright
  • Fresh
  • Crunchy
  • Sweet & Savory
  • Creamy
  • A Great Side Dish for Company
  • Vegetarian and Gluten Free

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!
