Creamy Cucumber Pasta Salad


Today’s Sunday Funday is celebrating a mid-autumn festival.

To celebrate, I thought I’d make a final pasta salad, using up the last of the cucumbers from the garden.  This salad is simple and bright, reminiscent of Cucumbers and Cream or German Cucumber Salad, two other great cucumber sides!  

It is a great side dish to bring to those last cookouts of the season!

Creamy Cucumber Pasta Salad

½ pound pasta (I used mini farfalle) 

1 English cucumber, peeled and sliced

3 tablespoons mayo

3 tablespoons sour cream

1 tablespoon vinegar

¾ teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon dried dill

Salt & pepper

Cook and drain the pasta.  Cool to room temperature.

Add the cucumbers to the pasta.  Whisk together remaining ingredients.  Stir the dressing in, then cover and refrigerate for 3-4 hours.

Before serving, taste, adjusting seasoning as needed.


  1. Pasta salads are one of my summer potluck favorites so I'm also looking for new recipes. Fresh crisp cucumber is a great addition!

  2. I was just listening to The Splendid Table and there was a question about what to do with a glut of cucumbers. Now this is a way I hadn't anticipated. Thanks for sharing.

  3. It's a great transitional salad.

  4. One last final pasta salad...a great idea. Oh how I wish we were having one last cookout this weekend...nothing but icky rain around here. Even though I love fall, I think I'm already missing summer just the littlest bit! Faith, Hope, Love, & Luck - Colleen
