This is the perfect recipe to use up any fresh garden cucumbers. Our creamy cucumber salsa is so easy to prepare. It makes a great afternoon snack or appetizer. It can also be added to any meal as a side dish. I’ve served this salsa with fajitas and our pork carnitas.

Ingredients Needed for Creamy Cucumber Salsa:

Cucumber chopped, peeled, and seeded

Cherry tomatoes

Black olives

Red onion

Chopped cilantro

Fresh parsley

Sour cream


Lemon juice

Garlic powder


Smoked paprika

Black pepper


Tortilla chips

Recipe Notes: This salsa is very versatile. If your family likes spicy, you can certainly add jalapeno peppers or more cayenne. If you’re not a fan of cilantro you can try replacing it with fresh dill. I’ve added avocado to this salsa and my family loved it.

If you have an abundance of garden cucumbers you might want to try our homemade dill pickles!
