Cucumber Salad with Homemade Italian Dressing

This is a very quick and simple dish. I like to make this salad ahead of time to allow the cucumbers to absorb the delicious tangy dressing.

Give my recipe a try. I think you’ll like it. 🙂

Cucumber Salad with Homemade Italian Dressing


  • 4 medium cucumbers, peeled, seeded and sliced
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon soy sauce (for a Chamorro Twist)


  1.  Place the cucumbers into a small bowl.
  2.  Place the remaining ingredients together in a small mixing bowl. Use a whisk to mix the ingredients together.  Pour the dressing over the cucumbers.
  3.  Let the cucumbers marinate in the dressing for about 30 minutes before serving.
  4.  Serve and ENJOY!
