Cucumber Dill Dressing

Cucumber Dill Dressing is a creamy dressing with the fresh taste of dill. Makes a great summer salad dressing.

Also tastes great on salmon. This homemade dressing is sugar-free and low carb.

Homemade salad dressings are so much tastier than store-bought dressing and they are a cinch to make. Without all the preservatives, they have a much fresher taste.

Cucumber and dill is a natural flavor combination. They perfectly complement each other.

Ingredients Needed For Cucumber Dill Dressing

  • Cucumber– remove the seeds from the cucumber. The seeded part is watery and doesn’t have much flavor.
  • Mayonnaise
  • Lemon Juice– adds some acidity. You can use a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar if you don’t have lemon juice.
  • Fresh Dill– I don’t recommend using dried dill. Fresh dill is easy to grow in a pot during the summer months.
  • Green Onion– chives can be used instead.
  • Salt and Pepper– add them to taste.

Equipment Needed

You will need a blender or food processor to blend the dressing.

Recipe Tips

If dressing is too thick, add a splash of milk.

Best made at least an hour in advance to give the flavors a chance to blend. Will keep refrigerated for 5 to 7 days.

Variations

You can add a minced garlic clove or a pinch of garlic powder for some garlic flavor.

Add a little cayenne pepper if you want it spicy.
