Not only is this salad incredibly delicious, it’s healthy AND budget-friendly! I used regular sour cream in the dressing (because it was in my fridge), but you can also substitute low fat sour cream or yogurt to make it even healthier.
Thinly sliced crispy cucumbers and red onions in a tart and creamy dill dressing = A winning combination!
Cucumbers are one of my favorite veggies and I could probably eat them every day. I love making all different variations of salads with cucumbers! If you’re a cucumber lover like me, be sure to check out all of my other cucumber salad recipes.
