A cool side dish perfect for hot summer days, using sweet bell peppers instead of onions for those like me who don't care for onions!

Directions

  1. Place cucumbers and bell peppers into a colander and allow liquid to drain for 4 hours. While vegetables are draining, place yogurt into a separate colander lined with paper towels and let stand for 4 hours to allow excess whey to drain from the yogurt.
  2. Combine cucumbers, bell peppers, thickened yogurt, sour cream, vinegar, dill, salt, and black pepper in a large salad bowl; chill before serving.

Really good! My husband gave it 4 stars. For him, that is high praise!

This was delicious, but I think there's an error in the salt measurement. I put in only 1 tsp, and even with the salt reduced this much, the result actually tasted of salt, which dulled the brightness that I associate with cucumber salad. Next time, I'll cut that in half. I also added about a half of a mild, medium white onion, sliced very thin. With these changes, I'll definitely make this my go-to cucumber salad!

I followed the recipe precisely and it came out extremely bitter. I am not sure what I could have done to correct that problem, I am not a fan.
