Easy Dairy-Free Cucumber Salad Recipe

Total Prep Time: 10-15 minutes, or 2-3 hours Makes: 5-8 servings

Easy Dairy-Free Cucumber Salad Ingredients

  • 3 organic cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup soy-free vegenaise
  • 1/2 organic onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon xylitol (more for a sweeter dressing)
  • sea salt to taste

Easy Dairy-Free Cucumber Salad Directions:

  1. Add xylitol to vegenaise and set aside. This gives the xylitol a chance to dissolve.
  2. Combine cucumbers, salt and onion. Right before serving, add dressing.
  3. Add onions and salt to cucumbers. Let sit for a few hours. This will allow the moisture to come out of the cucumbers.
  4. Drain excess water and add dressing before serving.
    This method, although it takes longer, will keep the cucumber salad less runny if it is stored for any amount of time before consuming.
  5. Top with organic dill for added flavor if desired.
  6. Enjoy!
