Cucumber Salad This recipe is fairly simple, although it requires some planning ahead, and is so amazingly delicious. The cucumbers have an amazing texture. I never measured the amount of yogurt I use, so add slowly and stop when you have as much as you want.

Ingredients: (approximate amounts)

Half of a large english cucumber
1/2-1 cup yogurt or mixture with sour cream
2-3 tsp dillweed
Salt and pepper to taste


Slice the cucumber as thinly as you can. Find 2 plates that nest together well. Spread the cucumbers on one of the plates, sprinkling with a tiny bit of salt at each layer. Put the second plate on top of the cucumbers, and add something for weight. (More plates?) Let sit like this for a couple of hours, draining liquid off every so often.

Drain liquid off cucumbers and put in a bowl. Add yogurt or yogurt/sour cream mixture and dillweed. Mix well. Taste and adjust seasonings.

Serves 2-3
