How to Make Creamy Cucumber Salad?

  • Cut up the cucumbers and onion. This can be done by hand or using a mandoline slicer for a precise and consistent thickness.
  • Make the dressing- Mix together the Greek yogurt (or sour cream), lemon juice & zest, dill, garlic, salt, and pepper.
  • Mix together the cucumbers, onion, and dressing.

Why Should I use English Cucumbers?

English cucumbers are preferred because the seeds are smaller. The large seeds in a slicing cucumber cause them to be more bitter. Also, the skin on English cucumbers are thinner, eliminating the need to peel the cucumber.

What Greek Yogurt should I use?

Make sure you it’s PLAIN Greek yogurt. You can use non-fat or full fat, whichever you have on hand or prefer. I like to use the brand FAGE because it’s super smooth and creamy just like sour cream but without all the fat and calories and lots of protein.
