This keto cucumber salad is so easy that the compliments it brings are almost embarrassing. This is a 5-minute salad if you’re quick with a knife! The only issue to consider in turning this cucumber salad classic into a keto cucumber salad and minding the carbohydrates in the sour cream. Some sour cream, especially the low fat versions, can have a few more carbs than you might expect. Otherwise, the rest of the carbs in this dish come from the cucumbers themselves and I am hesitant to get overly concerned about over-eating a raw vegetable, a food that is probably going to help us when the long game. In my Bearish eating, I would eat a generous portion of this salad with something like pulled pork or a spicy meat dish. The cucumber and sour cream pair very well with something on the spicier side from Mexican and Indian cuisines.
This keto cucumber salad will keep in the refrigerator for several days, though the dressing will end up with more moisture from the cucumbers. The flavor is still quite good.

In a separate bowl, mix together the sour cream, dill weed, garlic, and pepper.
