Step 1: Slice your cucumbers

For this particular recipe, you’ll want very thin slices of cucumber. In her TikTok video, Yumna uses a vegetable peeler for this, which is genius! Take your cucumber and thinly slice until finished. Set aside.

Step 2: Make your dressing

Combine sour cream, red wine vinegar, sugar, garlic powder and fresh dill in a medium bowl. Whisk all ingredients until thoroughly mixed.

Step 3: Add your vegetables

Place your slices of cucumber directly into the bowl of dressing. Then, using your vegetable peeler, slice a few pieces of red onion right into the cucumbers. Season with salt and pepper to taste, mix together and enjoy!

You can eat this quick cucumber salad alone or as a side dish. It would pair well with a grilled dish like these spicy chicken kabobs. However you slice it, we just know you’re going to love it!
