This fresh and tangy cucumber dill sauce uses non-fat plain yogurt to give it a creamy taste and texture. It can be eaten as a side dish with grilled chicken or as a topping on a gyro or pita sandwich!!
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 cup Fat Free Plain or Non-Fat Greek Yogurt
    6 cups Pickling Cucumber or Persian Cucumber, sliced thin
    1/2 cup Red Onion, sliced very thin
    2 cloves minced Garlic
    1/8 cup fresh Dill weed
    Juice of 1/4 lemon
    Salt and Pepper

Directions

Drain excess liquid from yogurt using either cheesecloth or coffee filter placed into colander. Place in refrigarator for minimun of 30 mintues, longer draining time will yield thicker sauce. If you use Greek Yogurt you do not need to drain it!

While yogurt is draining, slice cucumbers and onions into thinnest slices you can.

After yogurt has drained place in mixing bowl. Add dill, garlic, lemon juice, salt/pepper and mix well.

Pour yogurt mixture over cucumber/onion mixture. Chill for 1-4 hours before serving.

    This was really good. I chopped up the cucumber and onion instead of slicing. It seemed to work better for me, but the taste was excellent. Only thing I'd do different next time......is make more ! - 8/29/07

    I know I will love this; I've made variations in the past but will try this next. You can buy Greek yogurt cheese (I get it at Trader Joe's), which is much thicker than regular yogurt. I usually use a Kirby (also know as "English" or "Hot House" cucumber; they have tiny seeds and less water. - 2/24/09
