"Simple, quick, easy and healthy. Greek yogurt is key for this, or if you use a plain yogurt; make sure to drain it over night, so it is rich and creamy. And, so is fresh dill - a must for this salad. And don't worry amount the amount ... add more tomato, or more cucumber and onion that you like - make it your salad. The dressing remains the same. This is a VERY mild and light salad. "

Step 1

Yogurt ... If you can't find Greek yogurt, plain yogurt works fine; however, I do like strain it over night to get a rich thick yogurt consistency. Add plain yogurt to a coffee filter and place in a strainer or colander and place over a bowl. Cover and refrigerate over night. The next day you will left with a creamy thick yogurt and all the extra water will have drained out.

Step 2

Cucumbers ... Prepare the cucumbers and place on a couple of paper towels to absorb some of the liquid, just 5 minutes as you prepare the other vegetables.

Step 3

Salad ... Mix the yogurt, garlic, dill, sugar and a pinch of both salt and pepper. Add to a bowl along with the tomatoes, cucumber, onion and toss. Check for seasoning and adjust as needed. And, as I said, this isn't an exact salad, you can add more or less of any of the vegetables depending on your taste.

Step 4

Serve ... Refrigerate 30 minutes before serving. This is also really nice served over a bed of greens too. ENJOY!
