Here's to our health!Cucumber Dill Salad with Greek Yogurt
What You Need:
2 cups 0% Fage Greek Yogurt
3-4 Large Cucumbers
1 Red Onion
1/2 cup Light Sour Cream
1/2 tsp Salt*
1/2 tsp Black Pepper*
3 tbsp Dill Weed
1 tbsp Lemon Juice
1 tbsp Sugar
*more or less to taste
To start, finely slice your cucumbers and sprinkle with a small pinch of salt. Place into a colander and let sit for 1 hour. Press down and remove the water to help prevent your salad from becoming too runny. After pressing let the, sit again while you prep the salad.
Next, whisk together all remaining ingredients (except for the red onion).
Finely slice the red onion so it is thin and bite sized. I halved my onion to maintain the shape, then sliced it very thin - less than 1/8 in. This way no one go a major piece of onion in their salad.
Now it's time to do a final press on the cucumbers to remove the water, then place into a large bowl, Fold in the onion and yogurt mixture until all cucumbers are coated. Chill and serve when needed.
Tis recipe is a high protein, low fat, and super flavorful treat for any day! Don't forget to do a taster test to see if more salt and pepper is needed for your preference.
Thanks so much for making a simple salad with us!
