sour cream, or to taste
vinegar, or more to taste
red onion, thinly sliced
celery, thinly sliced
We LOVED this! I used baby cukes (maybe 4), extra sour cream in place of the yogurt b/c I had none on hand and omitted the celery (personal preference). I can't believe it, but I totally forgot the vinegar in this, lol, but it was wonderful w/o it and stayed more on thick side rather than liquid-y, which we loved. I will def be making this again (the same way I did today)~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
I had to use 2 (what I consider regular size) cucumbers to handle all the dressing the recipe makes, and I used the whole stalk of celery. I didn't have yogurt, so I used all sour cream. I also didn't have a lime, so I used a lemon. It was a good, light tasting salad. I will try it again with lime. *Update- I served this to my sister, and she loved it. I also tried it again with lime, and I liked it both ways.
I rate this between 4~5. One, I didnt have celery so I had to leave it out. However, I cant imagine only using a 1/2 a cucumber. I also really don't care for a lot of dressing, so I used 1 medium cucumber and halved the dressing. I used a garden cucumber and peeled and de-seeded it. I cut the onion and cucumber between 1/8~1/4 inch slices, as it really didnt say. I used non fat yogurt, reduced fat sour cream, but regular mayo, which was what I had. Made as written, here, I got 3 servings at approximately 78 calories each. Overall, it was a little more vinegary, or tart, than I like. For the lime juice I used 1 1/2 tsp. when I halved it. I might test a little less white vinegar, though, next time. However, I liked the dill flavor and that the dressing was not real thick. I would still make this again. Note: Second time making, and still halving the dressing, I only did 1 Tblsp of white vinegar instead of 2 and that worked perfect. May even add another half a cucumber due to extra dressing.
I grow my own cucumbers and make my own goat milk yogurt, so this recipe suited what I had on hand. The only change I made was using all drained yogurt instead of adding the sour cream. Everything else was the same. I have made this twice, doubling and tripling the the recipe, and we ate every bit It is a delicious way to use my bumper crop and holds in the refrigerator for several days.
Very tasty and easy to make.
