A New Way to Use Garden-Fresh Cucumbers
Each year my little garden gets overtaken by a certain plant. This year it is the cucumber plant.
This crazy plant has vined its way throughout the entire garden. I felt like that I had it contained, then we went on vacation.
I came home and the cucumber plant had taken over. I can’t really complain though, more cucumbers have lead me to some pretty tasty dishes and drinks!
Cucumber Pea Salad is our go-to weekend salad!
How to Make Cucumber Pea Salad
This is such an easy salad. The entire recipe is in the printable recipe card at the bottom, but I want to share some extra tips I learned here first.
Chop All The Veggies So They Are the Same Size
We took one of our giant cucumbers and deseeded it. Then we finely diced the cucumber into small pieces.
The trick of this dish is to get all the ingredients to be about the same size.
It just makes for a better curb appeal of the dish. This dish is pretty simple to make, just a little bit of chopping.
How to Make the Salad Dairy-Free
It’s easy to turn this into a dairy-free salad. Just leave out the cheese and pick up some dairy-free mayo.
How to Store the Salad
You will definitely want to refrigerate it if you have leftovers. It will last about a week in the refrigerator. I wouldn’t recommend freezing it. That will change the texture way too much.
Other Mix-In Ideas
This is a pretty basic recipe. Let me know if you make any modifications, I’d love to hear! Off the top of my head, here are a few ideas you can try:
- Chopped tomatoes
- Chopped fresh dill
- Corn kernels
- Chopped raw cauliflower
- Seeded and salted sunflower seeds
Cucumber Pea Salad
- In a large bowl, mix frozen peas and diced cucumbers.
- Mix together mayo and apple cider vinegar.
- Pour 3/4 of the mayo mixture on the peas and cucumbers. Reserve the remaining mayo mixture for later.
- Mix in red onion, cheddar cheese and crumbled "bacon" to the frozen peas and cucumbers. Stir to coat.
- Add more mayo mixture if needed.
- Serve and enjoy!
