This Dilled Creamy Cucumber Salad is the easiest summer salad that you are ever going to make! The radishes add a zippy tang to the classic creamy cucumber taste, and the dill makes it salad perfection!
Dilled Creamy Cucumber Salad
We ate this cucumber salad with New York Strip Steaks when we were camping the other weekend and it was demolished. Utterly demolished. While I love a regular cucumber salad, the addition of those radishes really makes this the best I’ve had. You need their tart heat to foil the richness of the mayo based dressing. Try this with my focaccia peasant bread for the perfect meal!

Once it’s stored in an airtight container, your dilled creamy cucumber salad will last for up to 3 days in the fridge. It might last a day or two longer But if it feels squishy to touch or you see any mold growing on the skin then it’s definitely bad! The mayo dressing tends to get watery as well. This is best eaten freshly made!
