This salad is a really, really good thing. I could – and might, starting now – eat it every day, it’s just that fresh and light and delicious. (Oh, and it’s also excellent alongside lots of different dishes, including last night’s Curried Chicken A La Oscar.)
CUCUMBER, YOGURT & DILL SALAD (serves 2 as a side dish)
What you need:
Half an English cucumber (the kind sold in plastic wrap in supermarkets), very thinly sliced
1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 tbsp chopped fresh dill
Big squeeze of fresh lemon juice
1 minced garlic clove
1 tsp olive oil
Salt & pepper
What you do:
Toss together all ingredients in a large bowl; season to taste with salt & pepper. Serve garnished with a little extra chopped dill.
P.S. If you grate the cucumber rather than thinly slicing it, this makes a fabulous tzatziki dip.
