  • 2 cucumbers
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 red apple
  • 1 onion
  • 1/4 cup of raisins
  • 7 hard-boiled eggs
  • Mayonnaise to taste


  1. Prepare the Vegetables and Fruit: Begin by washing the cucumbers, carrots, and red apple. Peel the carrots. For a burst of color and texture, dice the cucumbers and carrots into bite-sized pieces. Core the apple and chop it into similar-sized pieces as the vegetables. Finely chop the onion for a bit of sharpness in every bite.
  2. Boil and Chop the Eggs: Place the eggs in a pot of water, bring to a boil, and cook until hard-boiled, about 9-10 minutes. Once cooled, peel the eggs and chop them into chunks. The eggs will add a rich, creamy texture to the salad.
  3. Combine Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the chopped cucumbers, carrots, apple, onion, and raisins. The raisins will add a sweet contrast to the crunchy vegetables and tangy apple.
  4. Add Eggs and Mayonnaise: Add the chopped eggs to the bowl with the vegetables and fruit. Add mayonnaise according to your preference; use enough to lightly coat the ingredients without overwhelming them. Gently mix everything together until well combined.
  5. Chill and Serve: For the best flavor, let the salad chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving. This allows the flavors to meld together beautifully.

This Crunchy Cucumber and Egg Salad is a refreshing and satisfying dish, perfect for picnics, potlucks, or a light lunch. The combination of fresh, crisp vegetables and fruit with the creaminess of boiled eggs and mayonnaise makes for a delightful contrast of textures and flavors that everyone is sure to enjoy.
