Cucumber Dill Salmon ~ pan seared salmon topped with a creamy Greek yogurt, cucumber-dill sauce with a hint of lemon. This easy recipe is ready in just 20 minutes without any sour cream!

Today I’m throwing back to a few years ago when I first published this recipe. I’ve updated the photos to show how drool-worthy this recipe is and added a video to show how easy it is to make this recipe in under 20 minutes.

A few ingredients come together to form the cucumber dill sauce, but friends, sour cream and mayonnaise are not among them.

Turkey Meatballs and Marinara

Turkey Meatballs and Marinara: Tender, juicy meatballs seared then simmered in robust marinara sauce. Healthy twist on a classic without sacrificing taste.

If you think beef is the only way to go with meatballs, think again. Turkey Meatballs and Marinara are pan-seared then braised in rich, robust marinara for a dish that not only your family will love but it’s classy enough (if you’re the type that has classy friends) for company too.

While I could be perfectly content with old-school marinara my husband is a card-carrying carnivore that needs meat and actually believes it improves his life. Who am I to argue?

These turkey meatballs won over the carnivore who calls them “fowl balls“. I can’t make this stuff up. They’ll win over your pickiest eater, too.
