This cucumber salad with sour cream and dill, like this avocado strawberry salad, is an amazing cold type of summer salad that is perfect for hot summer days.

 

Also, because cucumbers are made mainly of water, this easy keto salad is very hydrating, crunchy with a dose of creaminess coming from the sour cream – absolutely perfect in every way.

 

How many carbs are in cucumbers?

Cucumbers are very low in carbs and only contain 2.7 grams of total carbs in every cup and 0.8 grams of fiber. This means that you will find 1.9 grams of net carbs in every cup of cucumbers. This makes this vegetable an amazing option for keto salads and other keto cucumber recipes.

 

Tips to make this salad recipe

  • Choose the right cucumbers: Going with smaller cucumbers will be a great idea. The bigger ones may be bitter, while the smaller have a mild sweeter taste which is perfect for the salad.
  • Persian or English cucumbers: Both of these are great as their skin is thinner. Just thoroughly wash these cucumbers and slice as there is no need to peel.
  • Chill the salad for at least 30 minutes before serving. This step will allow the flavors of the salad to develop.
  • Instead of sour cream you can use crème fraiche, and you will get a salad that is completely new and amazing!
