Creamed Cucumbers

We have had a great cucumber harvest this year.  We planted 6 pickling cucumber plants and 2 seedless cucumbers plants.  I love a basic tomato-cucumber-red onion salad, but THIS recipe is my new favorite for those seedless cucumbers.  Try it!  It is from www.allrecipes.com, with a few small modifications.

Creamed Cucumbers

  • 5 cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch green onions with tops, chopped
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice or white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 drops hot pepper sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes (or 1-2 T fresh)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder


  1. Combine cucumbers and green onions in a large bowl. Cover and let stand for 1 hour. Combine all remaining ingredients; pour over cucumber mixture and mix well. Refrigerate for several hours.
