Cucumbers are one of my favorite vegetables; I love them in sandwiches, in salads or even just plain to snack on. I also love anything with dill in it, so this recipe is one of my favorites. The trick to this recipe is to make it right before it's going to be eaten, but it only takes a few minutes to make so there is no need to make it ahead of time. If you want to slice the cucumbers the night before and put them in the fridge and then put the dressing on after it will work well as well. Just make sure you discard any extra water from the cucumbers before mixing with the dressing.


Cold Cucumber Salad With Dill and Greek Yogurt

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 cucumbers sliced thinly (you can choose to peel them, I leave the skin on)
  • 8oz Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 2 Tablespoons of finely chopped fresh dill
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Pinch of Pepper

Instructions:

  1. Slice the cucumbers thin, sprinkle the salt and pepper on them and set aside.
  2. Mix the dill and the yogurt together so that the dill is even throughout
  3. Fold the cucumbers into the yogurt and dill mixture
  4. Enjoy!

** This salad is not as good after it has sat for a while. The water from the cucumbers mix with the yogurt and waters it down.

I am not a big fan of dill however with the yogurt it has the right balance for me.

Thank you for the simple salad idea! I also like the idea of slicing the cucumbers and using the dill yogurt as a dipping sauce.

Using it as a dip would be great - for other veggies too. Great idea!

After I wrote this I really wanted to go make some - enjoy!

I also tend to leave the salt out of the recipe and just use pepper if it's just for me because I don't really care for salt. I've been told it's better with salt though.
