I find both cucumbers and fresh dill to be especially refreshing when it's hot outside, so I think this light-tasting dish makes a great side during the heat of summer. Adapted from Cooking Light.

Nice, light and different, like a cucumber sour cream salad with couscous added to it. I used chicken stock for making the couscous and it did add the needed savouriness. Very nice accompaniment for seafood.

Pleasantly light and cool, but nothing to write home about. I agree with NovaM that it needs more salt and more something else. It's a bit bland as is, and I'm unlikely to make it again.

This was easy to make and VERY light & refreshing salad. We'll be making it again this coming weekend!
