Cucumber and dill salad is quick, refreshingly tasty and low carb salad.
A perfect side for your picnic or BBQ. This recipe is a nice change from the creamy style recipes as instead of cream or mayonnaise, I have used sour cream.
It is a super simple salad made with few ingredients like cucumbers, onions, fresh dill, Sour cream, fresh crushed garlic, salt, pepper, lemon juice, olive oil.
I love it because it’s such a simple salad, yet it’s packed with so much flavour that definitely everyone will love😋😋
