Remember last week when I shared this Authentic Swedish Meatball recipe? Served along side those delicious meatballs was a dish of Cucumber Dill Salad.

This is the perfect salad to bring to a potluck or serve as a side dish to any summer meal! And, if you have a garden, it’s a great use of those fresh cucumbers and herbs you may have growing!

Growing up, we always had a cucumber salad with onions and sour cream (or sometimes it had Ranch Dressing mixed in). It was good…but the heaviness of the cream masked the freshness of the cucumbers.

While on my recent travels to Sweden, they served us a side of this Cucumber Dill Salad that was out of this world! And I think one of the tricks I loved was how thin they sliced the cucumbers and onion. I used my mandolin, but a food processor with the slicing blade would work, or some very good knife skills! You could even SPIRALIZE your cucumbers for this salad! However, it’s NOT mandatory. You can still LOVE this salad with normally sliced cucumbers, I promise!

I sliced my veggies early in the day, and put the ingredients for the dressing in a small glass in the refrigerator. Then, when it was time for dinner, I drizzled the dressing all over the salad. This allowed the cucumbers and onion to keep their crispness, and the dressing flavors still mingled with each other in the glass in the fridge. It was a win-win.

If you’re looking for something new to serve with burgers, ribs, hot dogs, or even Swedish Meatballs…whip up one of the Cucumber Dill Salads too!
