Cucumber Spaghetti Salad with Dill Dijon Dressing

© 2023 |

© 2023 |

A quick raw salad recipe for cucumber spaghetti tossed with a tangy, herby dill Dijon dressing. It's easy, healthy and so deliciously refreshing. If you don't have a spiralizer, then try to julienn or shave the cucumbers with a mandoline.

  • 3 Persian cucumbers (or 2 English cucumbers)
  • Salt
  • 1 Small red onion, peeled, halved and sliced
  • 5 stalk Dill, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Honey Dijon mustard (I used Maille)
  • 1+1/2 tbsp Apple cider vinegar (white balsamic vinegar or lemon juice)
  • 60 ml Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Freshly milled black pepper
  • 50 g Salted roasted peanuts
  1. Wash the cucumbers, rub dry and cut into spaghetti with a Spiralizer . Place the cucumber in a sieve, season with salt and leave to marinate for about 30 minutes.
  2. Peel, halve and slice the red onion. Wash the dill, shake dry and coarsely chopped. Mix the Dijon mustard and vinegar in a bowl and slowly stir in the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Mix in onion and dill.
  3. Place cucumber spaghetti in a mixing bowl. Add in half of the dressing and gently toss together. Arrange on plates or in a bowl and sprinkle with salted roasted peanuts.

Esta ensalada está igual de rica con pasta, has elegido la opción vegana y es estupenda, pero igualmente se puede disfrutar con espaguetis tradicionales. Una receta muy buena.

Now that's a cool thing to do with cucumbers. Better with those with smaller seeds I think though-at least compared to the seeds in my garden variety. Happy new week Angie. hugs-Erika

...I never thought of using a Spiralizer with cucumbers.

The peanuts are a surprise! I really enjoyed the tomato cucumber salad you posted the other day, had it for supper last night. Thank you!

Looks delicious and I like all the ingredients.

Ronit 17/9/23 20:04

I often make a similar salad, but with sliced cucumber rather than "spaghetti" shape. I really like the idea, and will give it a try next time! Thanks for sharing. :)

Cucumbers do go well with mustard! Are you pickling anything this Autumn for the winter? It is currently the pickling season in my country. I bought about a dozen of jars of pickled cucumbers, dozen of mixed salad, dozen of beets etc.

For me, that is something different and it does look good.

un piatto super buonissimo!

Ron 18/9/23 11:12

You hit my sweet spot on this one, we love gurka (cucumbers) and this looks to be a lovely salad to go with some grilled meat. I'll have to substitute on the nuts, but I think roasted pumpkin seeds will work just fine.

Julie 18/9/23 12:57

I can actually feel the crunch of the roasted peanuts as garnish in the green spaghetti cucumbers.. super !!

Hena Tayeb 18/9/23 20:29

Now doesn't this looks refreshing?!

I do love cucumber salads, and this looks so enticing! I love the addition of the peanuts -- I always think of them with Asian cucumber dishes but this with the dill sounds fantastic.

Raymund 27/9/23 23:44

This salad recipe sounds wonderfully fresh and perfect for a light and healthy meal. The addition of salted roasted peanuts for that crunch and contrast in flavor is a nice touch. Thanks for sharing this refreshing recipe!
