"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..." See more 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 minut..." See morees 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!"
"The original recipe for this called for 3 cucumbers. Because my grandparents had their own garden, they always used homegrown vegetables, which were grown without pesticides and picked before the deer..." See more and animals could get them. This means that they were smaller than the cucumbers you often find in the grocery store today. Because of this, you may need to increase the sour cream in this recipe, depending on how much cucumber you have. When I mnade this using 3 large cucumbers from the grocery store, I ended up putting a cup of sour cream. Adjust accordingly and also to your personal preferences. The best way to make this is to add what you like! More dill, less onion, greek yogurt... This is very versatile."
