Last summer, a friend introduced me to creamy cucumber salad at a party.  I spent the rest of the party snacking on the cucumber salad.  It was delicious!  We do not have parties this summer, but I decided to kick this cucumber salad up a notch by adding my new favorite dressing.   Pickle juice ranch!  

Pickle juice ranch is my new favorite condiment.  Last summer, when I was doing a round of whole 30, I discovered the power of pickles when I was craving something sweet.  Adding leftover pickle juice to a homemade ranch dip is delicious and tastes good on various things.

This cucumber salad is super easy to throw together for a quick side dish for any potluck or barbecue, especially if you know someone who loves pickles!

What do you need for this Pickle Juice Ranch Cucumber Salad? 

Fresh Cucumbers

Do you use sweet or dill pickle juice?

I use a nearly empty mayonnaise jar, (always organic mayo) . I wash and cut up an organic English Cucumber, leaving the skin on. The cucumber is chopped into small pieces (1/4 to 1/2 inch); then I put them into the mayonnaise jar. I add about 2-4 oz of organic, kosher dill pickle juice. Season to taste with a small amount of salt, pepper, garlic powder and dry dill. Close the lid and shake. Chill and serve. For added color and flavor, you can add finely chopped dill pickles or finely chopped cubanelle peppers. Granich with chopped cherry tomatoes and fresh parsley! Delicious!
