Carol’s Cucumber Salad

This Quick Family Recipe is straight out of my momma’s kitchen. Summer hits, it’s super hot outside and we just want something cool. Growing up, cucumber salad sometimes just became dinner, but most times it was served as a side dish.

When I was a kid, my dad would head out to the grill, my momma would be in the kitchen prepping food for dinner and she’d have me make this salad. It’s such an easy recipe for your kids to make for you. 

I also have friends who don’t cook who have become famous in their family, church groups and workplaces for bringing this salad with them to potlucks. 

Side note: You know it’s a true Southern Salad when mayo is involved. And just like a true Southern dish, there’s no exact measurements.  

So let’s get started! 


  • 1 Cucumber, Peeled and Sliced
  • A Spoonful of Mayo
  • Splash of Pickle Juice (Olive juice, lemon or lime juice works, too.)
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste

  • Place all ingredients listed above in a bowl with a lid. 

  • Shake shake shake and then shake some more. If you take the lid off and notice some of the cucumbers aren’t coated, put the lid back on and shake some more. 

That’s it! Now you have this creamy tangy dressing on the cucumbers that is so super good. Happy Summer! Enjoy!:) 

Now it’s your turn! Let’s see your little ones making this Quick Family Recipe with you. Share your pics with Ellis and Tyler on the Z88.3 Mornings Facebook Page.
