It's fresh cucumber season! I just love when the cucumbers start coming in. English cucumbers are a nice substitute during the rest of the year, but there is just something about a cucumber fresh off the vine that gets me every time!
This salad is a quick, healthy side dish, or even main course if you like cucumbers as much as I do! It's perfect for a week night dinner, a picnic or even a snack! It will keep in the fridge for days so you can just grab it whenever you like! If you like cucumbers and Greek yogurt then this is the dish for you!
What You'll Need:
4-6 cups of sliced cucumbers
1/3 cup of fat free Greek Yogurt (Note: If you've been here before you know I like Oikos, if you haven't then that's what I use! ;oP Fage will work too, but the flavor of the Oikos is much better in my opinion.)
1/4 cup of fresh dill, chopped
1/4 cup of fresh chives, chopped
Freshly ground black pepper
A tiny pinch of sea salt
Cut cucumbers and place in a medium sized bowl. Set aside.
Mix together yogurt, dill, chives, black pepper and sea salt until well incorporated. Add yogurt mixture to cucumbers and toss to coat. Chill for at least 1 hour and then serve.
Notes: I really like this with cucumbers only, but if you wanted to you could add in some bell peppers and/or red onion.

I used to make it with sour cream, but I think the Greek yogurt just works better over all!
Thanks Jenny! I just visited your blog and I must say I'm hooked! :o)

This is one of my favorite ways to eat cucumbers, except for just plain of course!

This looks so wonderful. I wish I could eat dairy. I wonder what this would taste like with the new yogurt made with coconut milk. I just may give it a try. Thank you for sharing this on Friday Foodie Fix!

I would be interested to hear how it turns out with the coconut milk yogurt. I bet that would be delicious!
