Creamy Cucumber Salad

Submitted by: PERIWINKLEJENN

Introduction

A healthier version of the classic cucumber dill salad. Instead of sour cream, this recipe uses fat-free Greek yogurt. Be sure to salt and drain the cucumbers to give the salad the best texture.

Ingredients

    4 medium cucumbers
    2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill
    2 tablespoons kosher salt
    1/2 cup fat-free Greek yogurt
    1 tablespoons white vinegar
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 teaspoon Hungarian paprika

Directions

Slice cucumbers very thinly, preferably using a mandolin. Layer small amount of cucumbers in colander, then sprinkle with a small amount of the salt. Continue layering until all the salt and cucumbers are used up. Cover the cucumbers with a plate inside the colander, and put a very heavy weight on top. (Make sure the colander is in sink or a large bowl.)


Let cucumbers sit for 1 hour. In the meantime, chop the dill and finely mince the garlic, put aside.


After 1 hour, take a handful of cucumbers, and squeeze out as much juice as you can, and continue until they are all done. Rinse thoroughly with water, drain well.

After the cucumbers are done, return to the colander, and weight down one more time for about 15 minutes.


Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, except the paprika. Sprinkle with paprika. Chill for at least 2 hours.
