This was my dinner tonight. I did not have fresh dill, I used one teaspoon dried dill weed. I also added a pinch of sea salt. I made no other changes. Not only was it delicious, it was low in calories and carbs which tickled me. This. Is. AWESOME. I know I will be making this recipe a lot this summer. NOTE: You know, this would make a GREAT base for tzakiki sauce, too.


Very nice light and refreshing salad! Plus it's a perfect way to use up fresh cucumbers from the garden! I added a little salt to the thinly sliced the cucumber and let that set for about twenty minutes to let the cucumbers produce their own water then drained. I also used white wine vinegar vs. lemon juice as it's a bit milder. I chilled it for a couple of hours and it was delicious! A very nice combination of flavors and a great summer side dish - thanks!


Cucumber salad just the way we like it - with fresh and light lemon juice rather than vinegar, and no sugar. I also loved the addition of the very thinly sliced red onion which gave it just a little bit of a bite.
