Cucumber Dill Salad

OK! Holiday season is long gone! I am back to the salad days with the cool cucumber and dill salad. I feel this is somewhere between a salad and a raita (because of the yogurt/curd factor). The ingredients would be cucumbers(1 cup peeled and chopped), red onion (1/4 cup of thin slices), salt to taste, dill leaves (2 tbsp I used dried from McCormick), pinch of garlic powder, tiny bit of sugar and lemon juice. Mix everything together with yogurt and serve chilled. Yeah! I know its such a common recipe, but hey -its my blog!



Tomatoes, chillies, shredded carrots, shredded coconut, roasted nuts, rice crispies - all or any of these could also be added for the extra zing to the salad.
