You’ll Love This Fantastic Cucumber Salad with Garlic Recipe

Easy recipes are a saving grace for the busy household. There's nothing worse than coming across a recipe that you love, only to realize you won't have time to make it for weeks. With this cucumber salad recipe, you won't have to worry about that! This is one of the quickest and easiest recipes you'll ever find.

Cucumber salad is delightfully crisp and fresh. This recipe gets lots of flavor from its use of sour cream, coleslaw dressing, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cucumbers are very neutral in taste, so having the right blend of flavors is key. Bland salads are never a good thing!

This recipe is very healthy. Cucumbers are mostly water, so they're very low in calories and have virtually no fat. This makes them one of the healthiest choices you can make for your salad! If you want to make this salad even healthier, use low-fat sour cream. You can serve this cucumber salad as an easy lunch or as a side for dinner.

The most time-consuming part of this recipe is going to be shredding the cucumber. If you can somehow manage to find pre-shredded cucumber, that will make this recipe even easier. You'll likely have a hard time finding that, however. Make sure to take your time so no accidents occur! The last thing you want is to have to take a trip to the emergency room for stitches.
