This creamy cucumber salad is perfect for backyard BBQs, a light lunch, or as a base for cucumber sandwiches. Made with Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, this recipe is healthier than most cucumber salads. 


  • 2 English cucumbers, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup (30 g) red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup (240 g) plain greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic (1/2 tsp), minced*(see notes)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Freshly cracked pepper for topping


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the red onion, greek yogurt, white wine vinegar, lemon juice, dill, garlic, and salt until combined.
  2. Add the cucumber slices and toss to evenly coat the cucumbers. Top with freshly cracked pepper.
  3. Garnish with more sliced red onion and dill if desired.


Freshly minced garlic: You can use 1/4 tsp instead if you don’t like a lot of garlic flavor
