Make-Ahead Creamy Cucumber Salad...perfect for bringing to potlucks!You need very few ingredients to make this salad so I have often made this when we are invited to a gathering¬†and I want to bring something along but don’t have time to run to the grocery store. I always have every one of these ingredients in the fridge and pantry.

Our son Einstein loves cucumbers (which is a big part of the reason why I always have at least one in the fridge!). He eats entire cucumbers in a single snack, so I suspected¬†he was going to love this salad and I was right! He also happens to be our gluten free kid, so I’m always happy when I can add another gluten free recipe onto the list of ones he likes.
