Creamy Cucumber Salad with Dill

In my family every get together in the summer involves corn on the cob and creamy cucumber salad with dill. Unfortunately this lovely summer salad always has mayonnaise in it making it off limits to vegans, which is a shame because it's so summery and delicious. Vegenaise to the rescue, a vegan mayonnaise made from grape seed oil.

2 large cucumbers, peeled or washed and thinly sliced into rounds
1/2 a medium white onion, finely diced
1 tsp. fresh dill or 1/4 tsp. dried dill
3 Tbsp. vegenaise
2 Tbsp. cider or rice wine vinegar
1 tsp. grape seed or canola oil
1 tsp. sea salt
1/8 tsp. back pepper

1) Put the sliced cucumbers and onions into a medium sized mixing bowl.

2) In a separate smaller bowl whisk together the remaining ingredients.

3) Pour the dressing over the cucumbers and toss to coat. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.


  1. Hooray!! This was how Vera started to like cucumbers, she now counts them as one of her favorite foods :)
