Creamy Cucumber Salad

This weekend was a very busy weekend for me, I spent most the weekend designing a template for my old blog magazine, The Lovely Pink Diva It is a magazine for all things women, we focus on beauty, fitness, lifestyle, and relationships on that blog. Long story but it been down for awhile and a few the writers asked me about bringing it back. Many women found it inspiring, it focused on being a woman and letting the inner diva come out, through those areas I mentioned. We as women forget we are women first, we focus on being a mom or our career, but what about the woman we are? That is what Lovely Pink Diva is about. So I got a lot of work cut out on that blog getting it ready for the August 1 opening.

I am excited about this, the bad thing is, I had to start all over, so all our old posts are gone, but I look at it as a new beginning, it a new template, it a new start and that is always a good thing. I will tell you since had to do this template from scratch basically, it had me also tinkering with this template, so yes you see many changes on here. Being that I am a typical Libra, I am looking at this as a whole and I am loving how I am getting Diva looking and now I am starting ti think new template over here!. I am holding off for a bit. I need to concentrate on Diva getting that template done, plus I admit I made customizations to this one, honestly, I don’t remember where I got the customizations from.

With it being hot, trying to lose weight, and being busy now that I am back at work and getting that template ready for Diva, I did not have an appetite. So I wanted something that is light, tasty and will satisfy the little appetite I had. Truth be told, it was more the heat as to why had no appetite.  I had a beautiful cucumber in my fridge that a patient gave me. I also had some mint, most cucumber salads are dill based, what if we play it up and add a little cool mint to the mix, and you know what, it turns out to be a one really good combo!

Creamy Cucumber Salad

Total Time
Yields 4 servings

A cool, creamy cucumber salad, perfect for hot weather

Ingredients

  • 2 cucumbers very thinly sliced
  • 6 green onion sliced
  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon It's a Dilly seasoning from McCormick's
  • 6 leaves mint chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chives chopped

Directions

  1. First thing you want to do is score your cucumber with a fork, after you washed it. Just run the fork down it to make lines. What this does, it makes the cucumber a little more fancy looking for your salad. Yes, this step is optional.
  2. Next, slice the cucumber very thinly. See how nice they look with that scoring? Sometimes you need a little fancy for a salad that is simple. Anyway, after you slice the cucumber, put the slices in a bowl with the sliced green onions.
  3. Once you got the cucumbers and onions in the bowl, season them with the It’s a Dilly seasoning. Toss them so that the seasoning is through out the bowl. Set them aside while you work on the dressing.
  4. In a bowl, combine the vinegar, sour cream, chives, mint, pepper, and sugar. Mix it up well. You could use a plain yogurt instead sour cream if you want a healthier option.
  5. Pour the dressing over the cucumbers.
  6. Then mix everything together, make sure everything is covered by dressing.
  7. Then, let the salad sit in the fridge for about an hour, then serve the salad up and enjoy!
