Buttermilk Cucumber Salad





Another refreshing cucumber salad recipe for you.  It goes together quickly and easily.  If you have picky


eaters, don't tell them it contains yogurt and buttermilk.  I like using the small cucumbers because they


are tender.




•  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 45 minutes.

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.
