You'll be cool as a cucumber when you bring this one to the table! This Crunchy Cucumber Salad features extra-crispy cukes and bell peppers, making it a light 'n' tasty go-along for any springtimeĀ occasion.

What You'll Need

  • 3 cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 3 cups ice water
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 small red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. In a large bowl, combine cucumbers, salt, and ice water. Cover and chill 1 hour, then drain and return cucumbers to the bowl.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and mix until well combined. Cover and chill at least 2 hours before serving.

Notes

  • We like to peel the cucumbers for this salad, but you can also use them unpeeled or run a fork across the peels before slicing to give them a ridged look.
  • Have a whole lot of cucumbers on hand? Why not use some of them to make our Half Sour Dill Pickles?

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Cucumbers are so yummy in any salad and I love the many benefits that come from eating them, but would you please tell me why the cucumbers need to be soaked in salty ice water...don't they become waterlogged and limp from doing this, and won't they chill from simply putting them in the fridge after adding the rest of the ingredients?

Hi there! Soaking them ensures the crispness and fresh flavors by soaking them first!

Crunchy cucumber salad is the best tasting I've ever made and the colors are very appetizing. Try it...you'll love it!
