SRC: Shockingly Delicious’ Swedish Cucumber Salad

For August’s Secret Recipe Club, I was paired with Dorothy of Shockingly Delicious! Dorothy likes to try out lots of new and different ingredients and even gives you steps on how to create your own recipe! She has TONS of delicious looking recipes including these 5-ingredient gluten free flourless peanut butter cookies, Smoky Baby Back Ribs in the Crockpot and this Summer Mango Caprese Salad with Truffle Salt! Ultimately I ended up making her Swedish Cucumber Salad – Mr. Bean had a similar salad while we were in Sweden so I thought I would give it a try!

I made it while I was out at the cabin and genius me forgot to bring the dill. Oops. What is Swedish food, especially salads, without dill!?! Well I did my best by adding some Italian herbs and extra parsley. I also used red onion to make it more visually appealing.

Mr. Bean really liked it – it only gets better with time as the cucumbers marinate, so I definitely recommend letting it sit for a while before eating it. I also got the request to make it again (this time with the dill- haha), which means it was a success!

What’s your favourite kind of salad?
