HOW TO MAKE CREAMY CUCUMBER TOMATO SALAD

Get a large mixing (or serving) bowl. Then all you have to do is cut the tomatoes, cucumber and finely chop fresh dill. All these 3 ingredients go in the bowl altogether with the sour cream dressing. The dressing is simply sour cream mixed with lemon juice, salt and pepper.

All you have to do at this stage is give everything a good stir until all the veggies are well coated with the dressing.

Make sure to give it a taste before serving to see if it is seasoned to your liking. If not, add some more.

Tips for making creamy cucumber tomato salad

  • This salad can be made ahead or served right ahead. When you are planning on making the salad ahead, keep it in the fridge. Otherwise I recommend keeping all the ingredients in the fridge before the prep. That way this easy side dish will have the right temperature.
  • If you are not a fan of dill, try using chives or spring onion instead.
  • I like using cherry tomatoes but any variety will work well in this creamy cucumber tomato salad. Just make sure they are ripe.
  • Some cucumbers have a bitter skin. To avoid spoiling your salad, taste them first. If you find the skin bitter, simply peel it off.
  • If you don’t have sour cream on hand, try using unsweetened Greek yogurt.

Ingredients

  • 13 ounces Cherry Tomatoes (380g)
  • 1 pound Cucumbers (440g)
  • 2-3 sprigs of Fresh Dill
  • 4.5 ounces Sour Cream (130g)
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • A pinch of Black Pepper

Instructions

  • Wash the tomatoes and cucumbers. Cut them into bite-size chunks and throw everything in a large bowl. Add finely chopped dill.
  • In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, lemon juice, salt and pepper and pour over the chopped veggies. Stir until all the vegetables are coated with the sour cream dressing.
  • Serve right away or keep in the fridge until ready to serve.

Notes

  1. Dill can be omitted or substituted with chives, red onion or spring onion.
  2. Tomatoes – use any tomatoes you like or have on hand. My preference are cherry tomatoes for their sweet taste.
  3. Cucumbers – English cucumbers (the very long ones) or garden cucumbers or any that are available in your supermarket are ok to use. Taste a slice first and if it is ok, you can leave the skin on. If it tastes bitter, you will have to peel it.
  4. Adjust the seasoning to your taste.
