Creamy Cucumber Salad recipe: For this dish, use long English or Persian cucumbers, which have thinner skins and don’t need to be peeled (but you can if you’d like).

Because field cucumbers sometimes have rough skins, you should peel them, or at least peel some of the strips. Field cucumbers have larger seeds that can be removed with a spoon.
