As much as I love color and spice, there are days I crave simple flavors made with fresh garden ingredients… Without all the hoopla that comes along with ostentatious dishes.

Nothing satisfies that kind of craving better than a cool creamy Greek Cucumber Dill Salad.

This classic summer side dish is a marvelous way to use up all your garden cucumbers. It’s easy to make with only a handful of ingredients. Plus it’s healthy, with only fresh produce and a bit of plain greek yogurt for a creamy tang.

Greek Cucumber Dill Salad is a perfect summer side to pack in picnic baskets, along with sandwiches and baked chips. Or serve it at a backyard barbecue with grilled chicken, and fruit salad.

Making Greek Cucumber Dill Salad |

To make Greek Cucumber Dill Salad simply combine sliced cucumbers with fresh chopped dill, lemon zest, and garlic. Then toss with lemon juice and a bit of plain greek yogurt.

Season with salt and pepper, and a touch of sugar if needed. (Some years cucumbers are sweeter than other years.)

The lemon juice and greek yogurt meld together forming a tangy creamy dressing, that amplifies the cool refresh essence of the cucumbers.

I love this stuff!

Perfect Greek Cucumber Dill Salad |

Greek Cucumber Dill Salad can be made several hours ahead. Yet I find it’s better on the first day while the cucumber are nice and crisp. We always try to eat it up, instead of saving it as a leftover.

    I absolutely love the way this cucumber dill salad looks! I love greek salad in general, but I love that you added dill too! I can’t wait to try making this at home. The next time I head to the grocery store I’m for sure picking up all the ingredients to make this. Thanks for sharing.
