Cucumber Salad ~ fresh, crisp cucumbers sliced in a Greek yogurt, lemon-dill dressing. Assembles in 10 minutes and goes perfectly with almost any meal.

For some reason I always associate this creamy, lemon-herb dressed Cucumber Salad with summer, farm stands and grilling, but last week I happened to have all the ingredients in the refrigerator and was looking for an easy side so I made it with Apricot Glazed Pork Tenderloin.

I realized I be totally crazy saving this easy, tasty, healthy side dish just for summer.

You can make it with full fat sour cream but I’ve abandoned that ship for plain Greek yogurt in a lot of recipes, saving my calories for dessert.

Back in the day when bell-bottomed hip huggers were in style (the first time) and I could eat pretty much anything I used to enjoy this Cucumber Salad with full fat sour cream.

Today I rarely buy it unless my son-in-law is coming for dinner because I know he prefers it. I top baked potatoes and even nachos with plain Greek yogurt and I haven’t looked back. Not even a peek.

    Great flavor anytime of year. Though I’m with the son in law for real sour cream.
