Summer is here, and with it, the need for quick, easy and refreshing meals. If you grow a garden, you probably already have loads of cucumbers ready to make this easy cucumber salad with dill and onions. If not, I’m sure there are lots of fresh cukes at your favorite grocery store!

This cucumber salad recipe goes really well next to grilled veggies, or your favorite chicken, fish or steak recipe.

I LOVE adding fresh dill from my garden to cucumbers for a flavorful, but the simple salad that’s perfect for a hot summer day.

Here’s our dill harvest today and a bit of lettuce! We’ll dry some if it for winter.

Fresh dill from the garden

All you need for this cucumber salad is some fresh cukes, dill, red onion (yellow is good too: just not as pretty), salt, oil and vinegar. It’s incredibly easy to make: really, it only takes a few minutes.

Tools For Peeling Cucumbers

You can absolutely peel and slice your cucumbers with a kitchen knife, but it’s faster and “prettier” if you use one of these peelers or slicers. I used the ribbon blade of this spiralizer to make the salad you see here.

Variations of cucumber salad

You can enjoy this easy cucumber salad all summer long. But don’t stop there: create your own version of cukes salad by adding tomatoes, feta cheese, a yogurt dressing, etc.

Play with the way you cut the cucumbers too, for even more variation: slice them with a knife, use a ridged slicer, cut them in ribbons, or cube them.

Now go enjoy your cucumber salad!
