Dill Cucumber Salad

This recipe is a great light side for a summer lunch or dinner. Plain greek yogurt is used as a lower fat substitute for sour cream, that still provides the same taste and texture as sour cream. For a thick salad, 1-4% greek yogurt can be used, but it’s best to use 0% especially for individuals requiring a lower cholesterol diet.
