Dill & Vinegar Cucumbers

As many of you know I did a news segment on KCCI Wednesday night about buying fresh and local.
I decided I would post another of my favorite recipes for using local produce.
Today's star veggie is cucumbers!
Dill & Vinegar Cucumbers
1/2 c white vinegar
1/4 c plain or Greek yogurt (I use my homemade yogurt)
1/2 tsp dried dill
1 T sugar
2 cucumbers, thinly sliced
Rinse cucumber in water. Take a fork and score the sides of the veggie (this makes for a pretty presentation). Slice thinly. Mix all ingredients above and add sliced cucumbers. Cover each slice well with vinegar mixture.
Place lid over bowl and refrigerate for a couple hours. Enjoy!
I eat them like chips, on top of leafy green salads or on sandwiches.

Until next time...
look good, feel good, do good


  1. These are great, Sara! Thanks for sharing the recipe. They were a refreshing summer snack! They remind me of a recipe we made growing up only we used hot sauce, lemon juice & a little salt. Yum!

  2. glad you enjoyed them as much my family and I do! I think as humans we love to eat things we can pick up, eat, pick up, eat...etc. So its nice when we have a low cal, nutritious option to do that with.
    hot sauce husband would like those!
