10-Minute Creamy Amish Cucumber Salad Recipe Is Simple Goodness

Amish recipes are simple and delicious. Your vegetable garden doesn't have to be producing a bumper crop of cucumbers (that will happen soon enough!) for you to make this easy cucumber salad recipe. We're thinking Memorial Day or just as a side dish with dinner tonight. This Amish salad recipe is light and the perfect side dish for beef, chicken, pork, seafood

You don't need a lot of ingredients for this Amish cucumber salad recipe. You'll need cucumbers, salt, onion, vinegar and sour cream. Sprinkle the sliced cucumbers with the salt and let them sit for about five minutes to remove excess moisture. Then add the sliced onion, vinegar and sour cream. For a little spice, add some crushed red pepper flakes or a pinch of cayenne.

Did you know that a cucumber is 95 percent water and the whole thing has just 16 calories. Not bad! This is a creamy way to add this healthy ingredient to your weekly recipe rotation.

I love cucumber salad, so perfect for summer. Excited to try this version! #yum
I remember my mom making this when growing up and I liked it ...I've tried to make it myself and have never been able to recreate it successfully and wound up never liking my version of it. Will try again using this recipe. Thanks for posting
