Dairy Recipe - Cucumber Salad from the US

Posted on: June 20, 2017

We love dairy! In appreciation of dairy farmers and their cows, we’re sharing the favourite recipes with milk from around the world. Try this classic Midwestern recipe for a cucumber salad from blogger @DairyCarry.



  • 1 medium onion, peeled
  • 4 medium cucumbers
  • ½ cup of milk
  • ½ cup of mayonnaise
  • ½ tbs sugar
  • ½ tbs salt
  • pepper to taste


Read the story behind the recipe on Dairy Carries's blog.



To start, cut your onion in half and slice thin. Peel your cucumbers and cut in half lengthwise. I leave the seeds in, but you can make you own call on that. Slice the cucumber into 1/8″ slices. Toss the onion and cucumbers into a bowl, sprinkle with sugar, salt and pepper. Add milk and mayo, stir until combined.

Now you can eat this immediately but it really is better after it has sat in the fridge for at least 4 hours if not a full day.
