Fresh, delicious and slightly sour, that is the flavor of this cucumber salad. The dill and yogurt gives it a delicious Greek touch.
Besides the salad skewers I also served a delicious cucumber salad with my Greek buffet. By using yogurt and dill which are delicious seasonings that really belong to the Greek cuisine. By mixing the yogurt with real fruity olive oil from Greece, the whole gets a bit lighter.
- you use yogurt and olive oil as a dressing you don't want any extra moisture from the cucumber. You therefore halve the cucumber and scrape the seeds out.
- you really want to go Greek all the way, you use creamy Greek yogurt. If you want to make the skinny version, you buy some skinny yogurt and pour the yogurt in a cheesecloth which you hang above a bowl, so a lot of moisture will drip out. After one night, you get a thick yogurt with got a creamy flavor, but slightly fewer calories.
- you want the best olive oil from Greece, take one from the region of Kalamata. This olive oil is very fruity and fits well with this recipe.
In the morning
Make the salad in the morning. Cover with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator until the buffet starts.
