Cucumber Dill Salad

This Cucumber Dill salad  is a great little summer side dish.  It uses Greek Yogurt to keep it light.  1 Smart Point per serving!

This salad is very simple and lets the fresh dill flavour shine.  You can make this in just a few minutes.  If your cucumbers are young and fresh you can skip the draining step.

There are not many flavours going on here but it is a treat when cucumbers and dill are in season.  It’s ok in winter but a little more run-of-the-mill.

I like this salad with the baby english cucumbers or, in season you can get baby field cucumbers. You know the ones – they are too big for pickles – about 6 ” long and a couple of inches in diameter.

With the Greek yogurt this salad is only 1 Smart Point per serving (based on Calculator.net Freestyle pint counter).

So enjoy it as a side to your lunch or dinner.
