Looking for a Cucumber Salad Recipe

I'm looking for a recipe for cucumber salad. I tried it once and just loved it, but I forgot to get the recipe. I'm pretty sure that the dressing was a balsamic and olive oil vinaigrette - or something similar. Help!

Never have tried it the way you are saying. But, being of German decent. Below is how I make Cucumber salad.


  • 2 lg. cucumbers
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp. dill, dry
  • 1 tsp. paprika

Peel cucumbers and slice very thin. Place cucumbers in colander and sprinkle with salt. Let stand 15-30 minutes. Squeeze liquid out of cucumbers. Whisk remaining ingredients and pour over cucumbers. Best is marinated for an hour or more.

I have two cuke recipes that I use a lot over the summer (and, oddly enough, gave the recipes to a co-worker today).



  • Sliced Cucumber
  • Sliced Onion (white, yellow or red...red will change the color of the next ingredient though)
  • Cider Vinegar to cover
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
Place all in a bowl and refrigerate for at least an hour...GREAT the next day!


  • Sliced Cucumber
  • Sliced Onion
  • Sour Cream
Place all in a bowl and refrigerate. Great side dish, especially on hot hot days. Also is good on a potato roll as a sandwich!

I love to make a Greek cucumber salad.

  • Cut the cucumber in small cubes, with the skin on. (Sometimes I chop a small zucchini with this)
  • chopped red onion
  • cut up red bell pepper
  • Pitted kalamata olives (maybe a dozen)
  • Chopped roma or cherry tomatoes
Put in bowl and sprinkle with a little olive oil and lemon juice. Add some oregano and salt. Let set for couple hours to marinate in the frig. Add some crumbled feta cheese. Mix and serve. I use proportions as to how much salad I want.

I think this is the recipe you are looking for.


  • 4 large tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • 2 cucumbers, peeled and cubed
  • 1 large Vidalia onion, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup olive or salad oil
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. oregano
Put prepared vegetables in large salad bowl. In smaller bowl combine remaining ingredients with wire whip until salt and sugar dissolve. Pour dressing over vegetables and let stand in refrigerator about 1 hour before serving for best flavor. (05/21/2008)
