What is it about summer that makes me want to eat all. the. salads.? Not just because salads are light and summery and the perfect addition to any meal…but because summer produce is my absolute favorite.
And to me, there’s nothing more summery than fresh cucumbers.
And we especially love them in this Creamy Cucumber Salad.
There’s something nostalgic about it – it’s a recipe that’s been around forever and a dish that most of us have probably enjoyed at family get togethers at one point or another.
