Cucumber and Yogurt Salad with Feta and Dill
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
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. Add yogurt to cucumber-dill mixture, stirring to coat all pieces of cucumber with yogurt. Gently fold in feta, being careful not to over-mix. Season to taste with salt and fresh ground black pepper and serve immediately.
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.
