Healthy Cucumber Dill Salad

This Healthy Cucumber Dill Salad recipe has two main ingredients: cucumber and onions. But it’s the dill that really makes it special. You cannot beat this winning combination for a refreshing salad that smells as good as it tastes! The traditional version of this salad is a lot higher in calories as it typically uses sugar and sometimes cream. Instead this recipe uses a small amount of olive oil and vinegar. This salad is refreshing and tangy and a perfect salad to start off a healthy New Year!



HEALTHY CUCUMBER DILL SALAD




Recipe: Makes 6 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons dill, fresh and chopped
  • 2 cucumbers, sliced thin
  • 1/2 small yellow onion, sliced
  • pepper to taste 
  • 1 teaspoon salt (optional)

Preparation:

  1. Slice the cucumber and onion into a large bowl.  Drizzle with vinegar and olive oil. Add dill, salt and black pepper. 
  2. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving (the longer this dish marinates the tastier it is).

  8. After almost letting my cucumbers go bad (because I put off making it since I never gave myself the 2 hour lead time) I finally made this recipe and it really is amazing! Thank you so much for sharing! I'm going to make a double batch and do it again for the Superbowl!
