Tangy Cucumber-Dill Salad


The sour tang of this refreshing salad will wake up your taste buds with the flavors of summer. Using goat’s milk yogurt lends a flavor similar to feta cheese, but go ahead and substitute plain regular yogurt if goat’s milk isn’t available. This recipe comes to us from Kait of Habits of a Modern Hippie.

Serves 1-2

  • 4 cups cucumber, sliced paper-thin
  • 1 cup red onion, sliced paper-thin
  • 1/4 cup dill, de-stemmed
  • 1/2 cup plain goat’s milk yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Combine yogurt, dill, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Whisk well to combine. Pop in the refrigerator.

Using a very sharp knife or mandolin cut cucumbers, length-wise, and red onion into paper-thin slices.

Combine cucumber and onion in large bowl. Toss well.

One or two tablespoons at a time add chilled dressing to the veggies. Add dressing and toss until you like the consistency of the salad.

Serve chilled and enjoy!
