cucumber salad dressing

There's a cafe I grew up going to that made a delightful salad dressing. They called it a cucumber dressing and it certainly had a cucumber base. No mayo or anything creamy. A bit zingy from vinegar and what tasted like a hint of onion. Anyone have a recipe for something like this? I'm going to try to recreate it without one, but figured I'd take a peak at proportions first if anyone had a good lead.

Never heard of it, but it sounds good, and I would guess that you could puree some cucumber, add some white vinegar, olive oil and a little onion and cayenne pepper. And why not a bit of yogurt while you're at it? Yum

Try pureeing a skinned and seeded cucumber with oil, vinegar, onions, herbs, mustard with a pinch of sugar and salt in a blender until smooth.

Thanks. This is exactly what I was thinking. What I'm still curious about is how many cucumbers you would use and how long you think this should last in the fridge.

It depends on how juicy and what size your cucumber is i guess. try to start with one cucumber, a couple tablespoons of vinegar and about a half a cup of oil. If that isn't quite what you were looking for, adjust accordingly and try again. Sometimes ya just gotta try a couple times to get it right :)

Was a kind of a tzaziki (spelling) sauce?

Sorry just noticed you said nothing creamy. Disregard my answer.

I added this recipe about a year ago and the cucumbers alone are worth making. Adding minced shallots would be great; maybe it will give you some inspiration.

You can use rice vinegar, champagne vinegar, but I don't recommend apple cider vinegar.
