Buttermilk Dill Cucumber Salad

(4 servings)

I never tire of cucumber salads. They are light and refreshing, something I very much welcome this time of year.

2/3 cup buttermilk
2 tbsp sour cream
2 tbsp fresh dill, chopped (or 1 tbsp dried dill)
1 tbsp chives, finely sliced
freshly cracked pepper and salt, to taste
2 cucumbers

Combine the buttermilk, sour cream, dill, and chives in a small bowl or jar. Lately I have been using jars with lids, so I can combine the dressings easily by shaking the jars.

Add the pepper and salt to taste. Set aside.

Wash, then slice the cucumbers into thin rounds. I love using a mandoline for this, but a knife works well too.

Pour the buttermilk dressing over the cucumbers and toss well to coat evenly. Check and add more salt and pepper, if needed.

I bet you could swap out the dill for parsley or tarragon with good results. Thanks for sharing!

You could also use Greek yoghurt in place of the sour cream. Sounds delish. Thanks.
