How do you feel about cucumbers? I’m always kind of shocked when someone tells me they don’t like them, but then I realize maybe those cucumber-adverse people have only had grocery store cucumbers. Those overly large waxy creatures are a poor substitute for fresh garden cucumbers, which are loaded with a delicate flavor that I just love. And as soon the weather gets hot I start craving cucumber salads.
I like cucumber salad any time of year and I have a lot of favorites, but cucumbers are especially great when the weather gets hot. And it’s HOT right now all across the U.S., so I’m updating this collection to share 25 Low-Carb Cucumbers Salads to Keep You Cool. Hope you enjoy my favorite cucumber salads all summer long!
And last week I mentioned I was going to try sharing the weekly Low-Carb recipe Round-Up post on Thursday so that people who subscribe to the blog by e-mail will get it on Friday and have an extra day to get ingredients to try some of these recipes on the weekend. I got good feedback on that, so I think I’ll keep sharing the round-up posts on Thursdays.
All of these are favorite cucumber salads I make every summer when the weather gets too hot to cook! And I am constantly updating the photos (and I see a few more that need to get updated this summer!) If I don’t have cucumbers from the garden I love the mini Persian cucumbers that you can buy at Costco, or the European cucumbers that are available all year.
Just click the recipe title under any photo to see the complete recipe for that salad, and enjoy!
