Cucumber Salad....Redemption

Today is a picture perfect day in NH... 75 sunny and breezy. I'm loving it! The kids and I went blackberry picking this morning, picked tomatoes broccoli and green beans this afternoon. But I was feeling a bit sluggish...
Probably because of two days of pounding a heavy mayo/dressing filled potato salad... So I needed something a bit lighter today with my sandwich for lunch. 

Here is a  light healthy salad recipe for you.... I'm redeeming the calories my little cupcake and I consumed earlier!

Cucumber Salad
(recipe yields one side serving)

1 pickling cucumber or 1/4 of a seedless European cucumber sliced thin
1 tbs diced red onion
4-5 cherry tomatoes
1 tbs of low fat sour cream
1/4 tsp dill weed
1/4-1/2 tsp cider vinegar
pinch of salt


Toss veggies in a bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl whisk sour cream, dill, vinegar and salt together till smooth. Toss over veggies.

And enjoy!


  1. I love cucumber tomato salad and like your idea of the sour cream and vinegar. Usually I just squeeze lemon juice over it, but this looks like a great variation!

    Lucky you to live in New Hampshire! My man is from Massachusetts, so we've been up in those parts some, but not lately.

  2. I just saw that your in MI? My family is from the Hastings area. I haven't been there in years but used to spend summer vacations there as a kid. I was thinking of adding lemon to my salad instead of the vinegar... I'll try that next time!

  3. That looks amazing, it's like 9:40pm here and I'm looking at the picture and craving it LOL Kinda late to make it, but I'm thinking tomorrow for lunch :)

  4. Looks so healthy and delicious!!!!
    I have everything to make this yummy salad today ;)

  5. I'm pretty obsessed with this salad. It's so light and full of summer flavors!
