I found this recipe on the Coconut & Lime blog and it looked similar to what I recalled growing up with.
I made it with some burgers on the grill and some leftover potato salad that we had in the fridge from the night before.
This meal was like summer delight on a plate - it was so good.
I will make this salad again, without a doubt.
I did omit the red onion and next time I may omit the lemon juice next time - not due to flavor, but because it made it a little runnier than I'd like once it sat for a bit.
Below is the recipe as I made it.
Creamy Cucumber Salad1 large cucumber peeled and sliced thin
1 T dried dill from the garden
1 container plain greek yogurt
1 T red wine vinegar (I used white wine)
juice of 1/2 lemon
salt & pepper
Wisk together the dressing ingredients - froom yogurt down and then pour over the cucmber and dill - you can use fresh dill per the recipe and it calls for 3/4 oz fresh dill plus another 1/2 tsp. dried in the dressing.
SO GOOD! A hit all around the dinner table - you know that huge dinner table for 2!
