CUCUMBER DILL SUMMER SALAD

RECIPES
TIME TO MAKE:

10 MINS (3 HOURS TO MARINATE)

This cucumber salad is the perfect side dish for BBQ season! The marinade is made with your Vegehome grown dill and has a light taste that complements the cucumbers beautifully. It’s easy to make and is tangy, creamy, and so fresh.

Cucumber Salad is lovingly called Gurkensalat in German and is traditionally prepared with sour cream, vinegar, and fresh dill. Like most German salads, this one tastes best after chilling for a few hours. You can even make it up to one day in advance! 

This cucumber salad is not only full of flavour but also nutrients. Cucumbers are low in calories yet high in fibre, vitamin K, potassium and water content. Dill is rich in antioxidants and a good source of vitamin C, magnesium, and vitamin A.
