I love cold summer salads, don't you?
So the other day I told you that MGG and I went to the Hollywood Bowl. We had a fantastic time! One of our favorites things to do there was to take a picnic and enjoy our food before the performance.
If you missed my post about the bowl and our menu you can read it here: Hollywood Bowl & Jalapeno Mustard Dipping Sauce
One of the items was a cold salad. It was the perfect accompaniment to our sandwiches and chicken. And when MGG is "Mmmnnning" while eating it, I know it's a winner!
This is a very easy salad to throw together. It only takes a few ingredients and is done in minutes.
So let's make my Cucumber, Tomato, & Dill Salad!
Peel and seed your cucumber. Chop into cubes. Seed your tomato. You don't want the extra juice. Then go ahead and chop or dice your tomato. Place both items in a medium bowl.
Next add your yogurt, garlic, dill, and a pinch of salt.
Mix it altogether. At this point you can chill it and serve it later, or serve immediately. Be aware that the longer it sits, the yogurt will start to turn a little runny from all the juices going on. Just drain that off if you like. It doesn't ruin the flavors of the salad.
Simple and soooo YUMMY!
