  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine yogurt, dill, vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

  3. Remove cucumbers from colander, and pat dry with paper towels. Add to bowl with yogurt dressing; toss to combine. Garnish with dill sprigs, if desired, and serve.

    This was excellent. I added corriander to it. As well I wanted a little more base so added julienned carrots, small red and green bell peppers and sliced strawberries

    I used nonfat sour cream instead of yogurt which really complemented the dill very nicely. I also flavored to preference with white wine vinegar. Delicious!

    I could only find nonfat plain yogurt at my grocery. I do not recommend using it in this recipe. It lacked volume and was pretty boring. Next time I will try it with the suggested low fat yogurt.
