➡️ Tips for the creamy cucumber salad recipe with yogurt 🔎

Creamy cucumber salad is among my favorites when it comes to cucumber salad recipes. I really like slicing cucumbers and, therefore, I use them to prepare various vegetable salads, with vinegar, yogurt, or sour cream.

The preparation of this salad is very easy, so I will not insist on it because there are no secrets to share to get the best results. I just mention that it is important to slice the cucumbers very thinly, as well as the rest of the vegetables so that you enjoy a fine texture when you chew them.

Another important thing is to use fresh vegetables because the wilted ones are no longer crunchy and lose their nutritional properties.

As I mentioned in the ingredients section, you can use both Greek yogurt and sour cream to prepare this vegetable salad recipe. For the yogurt version, I recommend using only Greek yogurt because other types of yogurt could make the salad too watery and therefore unpleasant to taste.

Besides being tasty, quick, and easy to make, the recipe is also versatile because you can use other vegetables along with slicing cucumbers, not just radishes. For example, you can add thin slices of green onions if you want to enjoy an even more refined taste and you have this vegetable at hand.

Did You Know? Health Benefits

Cucumber (Cucumis sativus) is a widely-cultivated creeping vine plant in the Cucurbitaceae gourd family that bears cucumiform fruits, which are used as vegetables.[1] There are three main varieties of cucumber—slicing, pickling, and burpless/seedless—within which several cultivars have been created. The cucumber originates from South Asia, but now grows on most continents, as many different types of cucumber are traded on the global market. In North America, the term wild cucumber refers to plants in the genera Echinocystis and Marah, though the two are not closely related.

Cucumbers grown to eat fresh are called slicing cucumbers. The main varieties of slicers mature on vines with large leaves that provide shading.[9] They are mainly eaten in the unripe green form, as the ripe yellow form normally becomes bitter and sour. Smaller slicing cucumbers can also be pickled.
