Cucumber Dessert Salad

This looks gross but I promise it isn’t 😅 RECIPE BELOW 👇🏼

A nurse once told me to do whatever I need to do to eat more vegetables (since I dislike them and wasn’t eating enough of them at the time).

I wish I’d taken advantage of this refreshing dessert recipe (which originally calls for grapes instead of cucumber) back then!

Cucumber Dessert Salad

(This makes a large batch, so you might only want to make half a batch)


8 oz cream cheese

1 cup sour cream

1/3 cup sugar (or less, depending on your preference)

2 tsp vanilla

Add about 8 cups sliced and halved cucumber, or until desired proportion of sauce-to-cucumber.

Immediately before serving, sprinkle with:

3 tablespoons brown sugar (not pictured)

3 tablespoons chopped pecans (we didn’t have these on hand so I omitted them)

Tip: Best served soon after preparing, otherwise it becomes more watery (as pictured- normally the sauce is thicker).
