Soups & Salads

Creamy Cucumber Salad


  • English Cucumbers – These aren’t regular cucumbers, they are longer, skinnier, and usually have less seeds than standard cucumbers.
  • Chopped Dill – The fresh flavor and aroma of dill really gives this cucumber salad some life.
  • Garlic – A punch of fresh garlic balances out the mellow flavors.
  • Lemon Zest and Juice – This adds additional freshness and tang!
  • Plain Greek Yogurt – Instead of using sour cream, this recipe has a Greek twist by using Greek Yogurt. So creamy!
  • Granulated Sugar – Just a little, to balance out the tangy and sour flavors.
  • Salt and Pepper – Seasoning to bring out all the delicious flavors!
