Summer's Coming: Cool Cucumber Dip

Love, love cucumbers and I admit I forget to buy them when I'm making salads, shame on me! This is a quick dip just ready for your summer backyard table!

Ingredients (Taste of Home)

  • 1 large cucumber
  • 3/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh dill
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Additional minced fresh dill
  • Pita bread wedges

Peel cucumber; cut in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds. Grate cucumber; squeeze between paper towels several times to remove excess moisture.
2. Place cucumber in a small bowl; stir in the yogurt, sour cream, oil, dill, vinegar, garlic and salt. Refrigerate until chilled. Sprinkle with additional dill. Serve with pita wedges, nachos and enjoy! Yield: 2 cups.

Are you happy Summer's coming?!

Happy Memorial Day to all our Veterans now serving, served, and those who are no longer with us! Your sacrifices are not forgotten nor ever will! God bless America!
