Cucumber and Yogurt Salad with Feta and Dill

This year I’m loving the fresh dill in my garden, since previously I forgot to plant dill and was dill-deprived two years in a row. The last few days I’ve been using dill in everything, starting with this simple Cucumber and Yogurt Salad with Feta and Dill which uses my favorite Greek Yogurt and lots of chopped dill. I’m having a major brain freeze as to where I got this recipe, although I know it was on a comment somewhere that I saw the idea for a simple salad with cucumbers, yogurt, feta, and lots of dill. If you’re the one who left that comment, let me know so I can give proper credit for the recipe.

I do want to make it clear that this is a salad for people who really like dill, so if you’re just lukewarm about that flavor, you might want to skip it. Personally I think the combination of cucumbers, feta, yogurt, and dill is such a perfect match; it’s no wonder it’s become a classic combination. I loved this salad so much that it made me very glad I actually remembered the dill and planted two plants this year. They’re also in a spot where I can neglect them a bit at the end of the season, and hopefully the dill will drop some seeds so I can have dill again next year.

Cucumber and Yogurt Salad with Feta and Dill

Cucumber and Yogurt Salad with Feta and Dill is a classic summer salad that gets kicked up a notch by the addition of Feta!

Ingredients:

  • 2 long European-style cucumbers (or use 4 regular cucumbers)
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped fresh dill leaves (measure after chopping, can use more or less to taste)
  • 1/2 cup fat-free Greek yogurt (I used Fage Total 0% Greek Yogurt)
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • salt to taste (I used Vege-Sal)
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Cut off ends of cucumbers, and peel strips from skins, leaving thin stripes of green still showing. (If you don’t have European cucumbers and are using supermarket cucumbers with waxed skins, you may want to peel them completely.)
  2. Cut cucumbers into half lengthwise, then cut each half lengthwise into thirds, and slice. You should have bite-sized pieces not more than an inch wide. Place cucumbers into plastic bowl.
  3. Wash and dry fresh dill, then remove the thin stems with delicate leaves from the thicker main stems. Discard thick main stems and finely chop thin stems and leaves. Add dill to the cucumbers and stir to combine.
  4. Add yogurt to cucumber-dill mixture, stirring to coat all pieces of cucumber with yogurt.
  5. Gently fold in feta, being careful not to over-mix. Season to taste with salt (I used Vege-Sal) and fresh ground black pepper and serve immediately.

Notes:

Variations: This salad could be made with sour cream instead of yogurt. If you’re a Ranch Dressing fan, I think that would also taste delicious substituted here for the yogurt.

  2. This is SOOOO yummy! I made it tonight. Added two cloves of minced garlic and a bit of chives as well as a bit of fresh mint. I used half yogurt and half sour cream. It was SO SO yummy! Thanks Kalyn!

  3. “I loved the idea of this too; just wish I could remember where I saw it so I could give proper credit!”

    Sorry, Kalyn, but I’m going to have to turn you in to the FBI’s Recipe Fraud Department. It’s a matter of national food security.
