FAQs About Cucumber Salad Recipes

How Do You Make Cucumber Salads Less Watery?

Use salt! When you sprinkle salt over sliced cucumbers, it triggers a process known as osmosis, which helps to remove excess moisture from the vegetable. To do this, stack layers of cucumber slices in a colander, sprinkling salt over each layer. Let them rest for 30 minutes to 1 hour to drain, either over a bowl or in the sink. Rinse with cold water, then pat dry using paper towels.

Should I Peel The Cucumbers For Salads?

Typically, you don’t need to peel or deseed a cucumber. However, if you want to peel the cucumbers, that’s perfectly fine. You can strip off the skin using a vegetable peeler or a sharp knife.

What Mixes Well With Cucumbers?

Popular and common cucumber pairings include salt, vinegar, yogurt, dill, sour cream, feta cheese, mint, and garlic.
