Dill Week: Hungarian Dill and Cucumber Salad

Hi!! To continue on with Dill Week, I have a great recipe for a Dill and Cucumber Salad, which I adapted from a Hungarian cookbook:) It traditionally uses sour cream, but I created a lighter version with Greek yogurt. Hungarian food is very homey and fresh-tasting, and I feel like this salad embodies that. The dill really comes through, and the dressing just enhances everything.

To slice the cucumbers really thin, you can use a mandalin if you have one, or you can just use a knife. My cheese grater has one side where you can move the cucumber up and down and it slices thinly. I sliced the onion by hand, and split up the layers so that when I was done I got thin strips. Hope you enjoy this dill-ightful recipe! (Sorry for the bad puns this week😂)
