80 - - - Creamy Cucumbers

This is my mother-in-law's recipe, slightly revised (health-ified). These cucumbers are a favorite of mine-- I always request them on my birthday. These also are my favorite dish to serve alongside the Thai Chicken Calzones.

Cucumbers are a great source of vitamin C, and they are also very low in calories-- VERY LOW. One third of a medium cucumber contains only 10 calories.... practically none.

Creamy Cucumbers
Serves 8

4 medium cucumbers, peeled and sliced thin
1 onion (red or white), thinly sliced
14 oz 2% Greek yogurt
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp sugar
3 Tbsp fresh dill, finely chopped
1 tsp salt

In a colander, layer cucumbers and sprinkle with salt. Place a heavy bowl on top of cucumber to press out water. Allow to sit for one hour.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and refrigerate.
