Cucumber Salad Ingredients

Greek yogurt: you’ll need half a cup of whole milk Greek yogurt for this recipe. Don’t have yogurt? you can swap it for sour cream if you prefer.

Garlic: one clove of fresh garlic helps to give this creamy cucumber salad recipe some delicious flavor.

Lemon Juice: this adds the perfect lemon flavor and brightness to the salad.

Red Wine Vinegar: speaking of brightness, you’ll also need a bit of red wine vinegar to help dress the cucumber.

Dill: fresh dill and cucumber are a match made in heaven. I like to use fresh dill for this recipe because I think it has the best flavor. If you don’t have any fresh dill you can use dried instead. You’ll need one teaspoon of dried dill for every tablespoon of fresh.

English Cucumber: we’re using English (also called hot house) cucumbers for this recipe because they have a thin skin that’s not bitter which means you won’t have to peel them before using.

Red Onion: last but not least you’ll need one-third a cup of thinly sliced red onion.
