Cucumber Yogurt Salad

When I made this I was trying to do a “Healthy” cucumber salad. I usually add mayonnaise to my cucumber salad and I thought Yogurt would be a healthier alternative than mayonnaise.

recipe

2 cucumbers, peeled, quartered lengthwise, then sliced
Plain yogurt, about 1 cup

1 teaspoon dried dill, or a couple of teaspoons of fresh dill
Sprinkling of salt and pepper

First taste the cucumbers to make sure that they are not bitter. Depending on the variety of cucumber you are using, and many other factors, you may find a cucumber that is distinctly bitter in taste. If this happens, soak the cucumber slices in salted water for half an hour, or longer, until the bitterness is reduced, then rinse and drain before using.

To make the salad, simply gently mix together the ingredients. Salt and pepper to taste.
