Creamy cucumber salad in a white bowl with a fork.

One of my favorite things about summer is a fresh cucumber salad. Bonus if the cucumbers come from a garden or farmer’s market! I love to slather a pita with homemade hummus and then stuff it with cucumber salad – it makes the best lunch! I go back and forth between a cucumber and onion salad with a sweet vinegar dressing, and this creamy version with plain yogurt, radishes and dill. I love the pop of the red radishes and the bright flavor from lemon juice and fresh dill.

Ingredients for creamy cucumber salad including cucumbers, radishes, and dill on a wood cutting board.

Mmmm, fresh ingredients. Love those little radishes!

Do you have a favorite version of cucumber salad?
