Sometimes all we need is a quick and fresh meal or salad to go with a meal. The fresh flavors of cucumber and dill are one of those flavor combinations we absolutely love in the summer and can quickly be enjoyed year round. A lot of cucumber salads feature a heavy coating of mayonnaise-based dressing. This lighter version adds a lot of flavor, without overwhelming the cucumber. If you prefer a thicker dressing, cut down on the amount of lemon juice in the dressing.
1/3 c. Greek yogurt
1/3 c. sour cream
1½ T. fresh lemon juice
1 T. fresh dill, finely chopped
½ t. garlic powder
Salt and black pepper, to taste
2 large cucumbers, sliced and cut into half rounds
½ medium red onion, sliced thin
1 T. fresh dill, roughly chopped
- Prepare the dressing by whisking all of the ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly combined. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired. Set aside.
- Add the cucumber, red onion, and roughly chopped fresh dill to a large bowl. Pour the dressing on top and toss to combine. Serve immediately or chill for up to two hours before serving. Enjoy!
