 Cucumber, Yogurt and Dill Salad

Another refreshing cucumber salad recipe for you.  It is so easy to put together and definitely not time consuming.  If you have picky eaters, don't tell them it contains yogurt and buttermilk!  I like using the small cucumbers because they are more tender.  Serves 4 generously.




3 small cucumbers, thinly sliced*

1 small onion, skin removed and thinly sliced

Sea salt

Black pepper

¼ cup whole Greek yogurt

¼ cup buttermilk

1 Tbsp fresh dill, chopped


1.  Place the cucumber and onion in a small bowl;sprinkle with ½ teasponn sea salt and toss; let sit in bowl for 5




      minutes.  Transfer to a colander and let drain for 45minutes.


2.  In the meantime, in a medium bowl stir together the yogurt and buttermilk.


3.  Drain the cucumber mixture (do not rinse) and add to the yogurt mixture; stir, then add salt and pepper to taste.                  

      Chill until needed.

*Pull a fork along length of cucumber before slicing; makes an       

      interesting design.
